To Tax or Not To Tax?

Many local communities face proposals to raise taxes

Four cities will ask voters today to approve tax increases while one municipality is proposing the repeal of a previous tax boost.

Del Mar has proposed to raise its hotel room tax from 10.5% to as much as 13%. El Cajon has proposed a half-cent sales tax increase. Encinitas has proposed a special 2% hotel tax on vacation rentals of less than 30 days. La Mesa has proposed raising its sales tax by $.75.

The one and only city seeking to repeal a tax is National City.  If the proposed measure is approved, a $.01 sales tax enacted two years ago would go away.
