A South Pasadena Utility Users Tax, Measure UT ballot proposition was on the November 8, 2011 ballot for voters in the City of South Pasadena in Los Angeles County, where it was approved.

Measure UT reduces the amount of the overall tax on utilities from 8% to 7.5%. Each utility tax will remain in effect for ten years.

The current utility tax of 8% is set to be reduced to 5% on March 5, 2013. If Measure UT had not been approved, that reduction would have taken place.

17% of South Pasadena's general fund revenue comes from its Utility User's Tax.
