Litigation Delays Alameda County CA Sales Tax Hike

The campaign for Measure C on the March 3 ballot in Alameda County California won a majority of votes and was slated to take affect on July 1, 2020.  But litigation, claiming the measure did not win a two-thirds approval, stopped the increase at the last minute.

Measure C would raise Alameda County’s sales tax by 0.5%, making it the highest countywide level in the state. The funds would be used for childcare, early education and a pediatric trauma center, which explains why UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital has underwritten most of the campaign costs.

Until the litigation is settled, the rate for Alameda County will remain as follows:


  • City of Alameda 9.75%
  • City of Albany 9.75%
  • City of Emeryville 9.50%
  • City of Hayward 9.75%
  • City of Newark 9.75%
  • City of San Leandro 9.75%
  • City of Union City 9.75%
