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.

Ballot text

The question on the ballot:

PROPOSITION G: "Shall the City increase its local sales tax by 0.50% for up to 10 years to fund public safety programs and programs for children and seniors, unless the State increases its sales tax by either 1.0% before November 30, 2011 or 0.75% before January 1, 2016?[1]

Path to the ballot

Proposition G was approved for the ballot in a unanimous August 2, 2011 vote of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.
