ALL ALAMEDA COUNTY—Would establish a half percent (0.5%) sales tax for 10 years to provide essential County services, including housing and services for those experiencing homelessness, mental health services, job training, social safety net, and other General Fund services, with annual audits and citizen oversight. Measure W requires a simple majority (50% + 1) to pass.
Fiscal Impact: Would raise approximately $150 million annually for each of the 10 years that the tax remains in effect. The current sales tax in most of Alameda County, including Oakland, would be 9.75% (up from 9.25%) if this measure passes.
