S.F. Taxpayer-Funded Poll Reveals S.F. Taxpayers Don't Want to Pay Taxes

San Francisco voters say 'Bah Humbug' to new taxes

A poll commissioned by the San Francisco County Transportation Authority revealed that city voters are in no mood to pay the taxes the Board of Supervisors will likely today move to place on the ballot — where voters will eventually have their say.

The $20,000 poll revealed support for a proposed $10 local vehicle registration fee. But a trio of other taxes proposed by the board's progressive wing — a 10 percent jump on the parking tax; a revamping of the manner in which the city taxes businesses; and an augmentation of the tax on the sale of multimillion-dollar properties — all polled dismally. So, if you're keeping score at home, taxpayers paid for a poll revealing they don't want to pay taxes.
