Briefing complete in local tax challenge

By Damien M. Schiff Senior Attorney

With the filing of our reply brief on appeal, briefing has been completed in Building Industry Association – Bay Area v. City of San Ramon.  The appeal concerns the legality of a tax levied by the City of San Ramon on new development.  We contend that the tax violates a number of constitutional and statutory protections for homeowners and taxpayers.  We hope for a hearing in the California Court of Appeal sometime later this year.
