Los Angeles Business Journal (LABJ) Forum: Time to Ax Tax?

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa surprised L.A. business leaders by backing the axing of the city’s gross receipts business tax. So the Business Journal asks:

Do you think the city should maintain, reduce or eliminate its business taxes?

“Los Angeles would be best served to eliminate the business tax entirely. The format of the tax and the economic impact is contrary to the city’s current need to become more business friendly. With many alternative locales available to business owners, it behooves the city of Los Angeles to become more cost competitive for businesses operating within the region.”
