How will the Mayor’s budget impact the gross receipts tax?

Thursday, April 24
10:30 a.m. - Noon

The gross receipts tax is a mechanism for a different time and a different L.A. First imposed 78 years ago, it is the highest in the county and discourages businesses from locating, expanding and remaining in L.A.

L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti is proposing the start of a 15-year phase-out of the business tax in his 2014-15 budget.

Join us for a discussion with Rick Cole, Mayor Garcetti's deputy mayor for budget and innovation, on the Mayor's budget for 2014-15 and its impact on the gross receipts tax.
