Jump to: navigation, search
A Marin County Sales Tax Increase, Measure A ballot question was on the November 6, 2012 ballot for voters in Marin County, where it was approved.

Measure A enacted a one-quarter cent sales tax on the purchase of goods and services in the county.

A 2/3rds supermajority vote was required for approval, because in California, when a local sales tax measure is earmarked for a specific purpose (as is the case with Measure A), it requires a higher threshold for approval than local sales tax measures that are not earmarked for specific purposes.
