Measure Y Tax Rate Hike Takes Effect Today

Culver City residents approved the .05 percent local sales tax increase in the November 2012 elections, and the rate hike begins April 1.

Culver City residents voted in the November 2012 elections to approve Measure Y - a 0.5 percent local sales tax increase starting in 2013.

City officials said the increase was needed to maintain essential services, including 911 emergency responses, paramedics and police and fire protection.

The Measure passed by an overwhelming majority, 76.5 percent to 23. 4 percent. The final tally was as follows:

  • YES - 10,765
  • NO - 3,295

That sales tax increase rate from 9 to 9.5 percent will take effect starting today (April 1). The rate increase has a 10-year sunset clause.
