Alameda, CA school tax thrown out by court (SF Gate)

December 8, 2012 – A state appeals court has thrown out most of a 2008 parcel tax to fund schools in the city of Alameda because it set higher rates for larger business properties – a ruling that, according to the winning lawyer, could invalidate other school taxes around the state. A California law allowing school districts to propose property tax increases to local voters required them to set uniform rates for each parcel, exempting only those owned by seniors and the disabled, the First District Court of Appeal in San Francisco said Thursday.
