Sales Tax Change Takes Effect April 1
On November 8, 2022, Elk Grove voters approved Measure E, enacting locally controlled funding to help address services the community identified as important including reducing crime, addressing homelessness, improving 911, police, fire, and emergency disaster and medical response, enhancing programs to combat youth crime and gang prevention, maintaining streets, maintaining parks, clean and safe public areas, and economic development.
Measure E established a one-cent (1%) local sales tax. Measure E is not a tax on homes or property, and is not applied to rent, utilities, food purchased as groceries, or prescription medicine. Funds generated by Measure E stay local in Elk Grove and cannot be taken by the County, State or Federal governments. Funds will be used to address community identified needs and priorities.
The local sales tax will increase from 7.75% to 8.75% beginning on April 1, 2023. The one-cent sales tax is estimated to produce approximately $21.3 million annually.
