Fair Share Business Tax Town Hall


May 16, 2022 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Our virtual town hall on Oakland’s proposed Fair Share Business Tax initiative is coming up soon this upcoming Monday May 16th at 6pm, and we’d love to see you there! Members and supporters of the Oakland small business community are all welcome. At the town hall, you’ll learn about the state of Oakland’s current inequitable tax system and possibilities to tax corporate wealth to fund better city services. You’ll also have an opportunity to ask both Councilmembers Carroll Fife and Nikki Bas any questions you might have about how this new tax system would work and how it would impact your business. Spanish and Mandarin translation will be available. You can register here, and please spread the word!

In addition to showing up at next Monday’s town hall, you can also make your voice heard on this proposal by providing public comment at next week’s city council meeting on Tuesday May 17th, starting at 1pm. You can submit an e-comment in advance of the meeting here, or you can join by Zoom here and use the “Raise Your Hand” button during the Public Comment period at the beginning of the meeting under Item 1. The Fair Share Business Tax Initiative proposal will be discussed under Agenda Item 6.�
