A Palo Verde Cemetery District parcel tax, Measure I ballot question was on the June 3, 2008 ballot for voters in the Palo Verde Cemetery District in Riverside County, California, where it was overwhelmingly defeated.

If Measure I had been approved, it would have authorized the Palo Verde Cemetery District to levy an annual property tax of $100.00 per parcel. The tax revenues would have gone toward the operation, maintenance, improvement, expansion and future land acquisitions of the Palo Verde Cemetery District. According to the district, this would have provided "those living in the Cemetery District a cost-free internment of human remains, meeting the cultural, economic, religious, and social needs of the Cemetery's District."
