Revision as of 09:15, 2 October 2011

A San Francisco Sales Tax, Proposition G is on the November 8, 2011 ballot for voters in San Francisco.

If Proposition G is approved, the City of San Francisco's sales tax will increase by 0.50% (one-half of one percent) for 10 years. This would bring the total sales tax paid on sales of goods and services in the city to 9.0%. It is expected that the Proposition G sales tax increase would result in about $60 million annually for the city. The tax increase would go into effect in April 2012.

A 2/3rds supermajority vote is required for approval.
