Measure T – Reduce Taxes for Small Businesses and Generate Over $20M for Oakland’s General Fund


Measure T, the Invest in Our Oakland Act, will provide relief for residents and local business owners who have been heavily impacted by the pandemic. By creating an equitable tax rate and modernizing Oakland’s business structure, we can reduce taxes for small- and medium-sized businesses while making large wealthy corporations pay the taxes they owe, and that reflect their large gross profits. Measure T is expected to generate over $20 million every year for Oakland’s general fund, which we can use to address years of disinvestment in housing, high-quality jobs, education, public safety, road and sidewalk maintenance, and bike lanes.
