San Francisco's Payroll Tax: Reform or Retain?

7:30 a.m. | Friday, March 23, 2012

The recent recession has reignited a conversation about what it takes to attract, retain and grow businesses in San Francisco. Is the payroll tax a part of the problem? Should we continue the trend of governing by exception? Join us for a discussion about current efforts to craft an alternative to the city’s payroll tax, with City Controller Ben Rosenfield, Chief Economist Ted Egan and Jennifer Entine Matz, director of the Office of Economic and Workforce Development.
This event is a benefit of SPUR Business Membership and is by invitation only. Invitations go out primarily via e-mail, so make sure your e-mail address is up to date with us!
