We need to act now to create a progressive tax system that supports small businesses while providing resources for the city services that are needed for our communities to thrive.
The Lift Up Oakland Plan creates a modern, progressive tax system based on best practices from other cities in California.
- Small businesses with revenue under $250,000 would be provided relief, this includes 24,000 businesses many owned by women and people of color that are struggling to survive.
- Standardizes the business classification system.
- Removes the loopholes and tax exemptions.
- Creates a progressive tax system for all.
