Re: City user taxes

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I'm sure they (building authority) would have a different definition of it
but... I am continually amazed at the extortive measures building
departments, planning departments (especially city planning departments),
etc. get away with. In over regulated California it has gone way beyond life
safety issues.

Wait until a City jurisdiction try's to get you to pay a license fee based
on your total yearly gross as opposed to only what you grossed from their
jurisdiction.
