LA Voters to Consider Tax on Property Sales Over $5M to Fund Housing


Following a successful petition by a coalition of labor unions and other organizations, and a 14-0 city council decision Wednesday, Los Angeles voters in November will consider a ballot measure that would create a tax on multimillion-dollar property sales to fund solutions to homelessness, including permanent housing.

The coalition began collecting signatures for the United To House L.A. ballot measure in January, with the goal of getting 65,000 signatures to qualify for the November 2022 general election.

On May 2, the group turned in 98,043 signatures, with a sufficient number verified by the City Clerk. On Wednesday, the city council decided to add the measure to the November general election ballot instead of calling a special election.
