A City of Artesia Business Tax, Measure Y
ballot question was on the November 3, 2009 ballot
for voters in the City of Artesia in Los Angeles County
, where it was defeated.
If Measure Y had been approved, it would have increased the business license tax in the city.
As an example of the impact of the tax if it had been approved, a service business with annual gross receipts between $200,000 and $249,000 would have paid $350 in business license tax under Measure Y. This would have been an increase of $150 over what that same business pays without the Measure Y increase. A manufacturing business with annual gross receipts between $200,000 and $299,000 would have had to pay $750 a year under Measure Y.
