Legal Alert: State and local tax ballot measures

Voters headed to the polls (or mailboxes) this Election Day not only to choose the next president of the United States but also to make decisions on a range of significant tax issues across the country.

Although voters in California and the Portland-Metro area struck down significant business tax increases and the voters of Illinois rejected a graduated income tax, San Francisco voters hammered the business community with a slew of new local taxes and changes to the City’s already existing taxes.  In addition, high-earners taxes have been approved in the Portland-area and likely Arizona, and app-based rideshare drivers will remain independent contractors for certain purposes in California. These are just a few of the measures that were on the ballot this Election Day.
