POLICY PRIORITIES > 2019 POLICY AGENDA > Business Taxes
Common-sense tax policies that promote innovation and continued job growth in San Francisco – for both the tech industry and beyond – continue to be key to sf.citi’s founding directive. We believe in smart and effective forms of business taxation and will continue to support these models, while strongly opposing any legislative or ballot proposal that is punitive or stifling for our industry.
- As the voice of the tech sector, sf.citi continues to both convene and participate in collaborative conversations with elected officials, community leaders, and other stakeholders to promote the growth of the technology industry for reasonable taxation
- sf.citi supports collaborative efforts to propose an equitable, fair, common-sense tax system that benefits the business community and city alike.
- sf.citi opposes any and all taxes that specifically target or penalize the technology industry without efforts to collaborate with the industry itself
