Head Tax

The council is opening up applications for a task force to re-visit a "head tax," and the deadline is fast approaching. 

By a 5-4 vote, the proposed "Employee Hours Tax" on big business to fund homeless services failed, but all indications show the issue will return very soon.

O’Brien and Harris-Talley are proposing a new per hour, per employee tax that would bring in $24 million to combat the city’s homelessness crisis.
