Effective October 1st, 2017, a district tax increase will be applied in those cities that have not already reached the 2% limit on district taxes. The rate increase is due to the passing of Measure H approved by Los Angeles County voters on March 7, 2017. Measure H or “Los Angeles County Homeless Initiative” the main purpose is to develop strategies to combat homelessness and to direct the county’s CEO to explore potential sources of revenue to help implement this initiative.
