Proposal to Use Taxes for Tax Reforms

Los Angeles | IN BRIEF / LOS ANGELES

April 04, 2002|From Times Staff Reports

Los Angeles City Councilman Tom LaBonge proposed Wednesday that 75% of business taxes collected through a new crackdown on scofflaws be devoted to reforms, including possible rate reductions and tax code simplifications.

As a result of a new state law, the city can learn the identity of all Los Angeles companies paying state taxes, information that can be cross-checked with city tax rolls to determine which companies are not paying required city taxes.

The resulting crackdown is expected to produce at least $8 million a year. The motion will be considered by the City Council.
