**********

That's because LA has so many business regulations that prevents many businesses from opening shop in LA.

With the illegal alien-loving, philandering, narcissistic mayor running the city who believes in Global Warming, the situation makes it even worse..

"And as California raises its taxes, it continues to lose businesses to nearby Arizona, Colorado and Nevada, the survey found."

**********

And if Prop. 23 doesn't get passed on November 2, that'll be the final nail in the coffin for California.

The business tax has got to go. Period.

Instead of tweaking it, creating zones where it doen't apply and "holidays" from the tax, etc., they ought to just eliminate it.

1) If they dumped the tax entitirely it would show they are serious about being business-friendly, and not just making half-hearted attempts to have their cake and eat it too;

2) It would be great PR for people thinking of starting a business, or taking their business elsewhere;

3) People are sick of endless paperwork and dealing with bureaucracy - if the tax were eliminated people would have one less headache to deal with, and wouldn't have to wonder about things like, "Does the 'holiday' apply to my business" or "How long will the 'holiday' last"? People just want to operate their businesses; they don't want to have to become tax experts.

4) By eliminating the tax in toto we would have one less group of city employees' salaries and benefits to pay. As long as any part of the tax remains, there will have to be a bureaucracy to moniter it, enforce it, and collect it.

Sadly, I have absolutly no hope that the people at City Hall have given or will give these thoughts the slightest consideration.

Jobs are leaving, sure. But my family is still making more money here than we can make outside California. It's a different situation for everyone.
I'd love to leave, for reasons other than the economy. I'll just have to wait until I retire.

When LA isn't the costliest city to own a business, live, play, raise a family etc; then that would be NEWS.

soon another tax hike will come, another 10,000 will go to bust on their houses.

LA is expensive and people are so stupid living in it. You spend 2 to 3 hours sitting in traffic. Have your city build freeways on top of the existing freeways you guys have.

And speaking of your hometown of San Francisco or "Frisco", for short, it's even MORE expensive to live there. Might as well join the ranks of Tokyo and Moscow.

Not to mention the homeless transients scattered around SF who urinate and oftentimes defecate in public.

The illegal alien gangbangers being given sanctuary in SF by your liberal, left-wing buffoons David Campos, Kamala Harris, Gavin Newsom,.... Sure, there's no difference there between LA and SF, but unlike SF and Kamala Harris, LA has allowed ICE to arrest and deport illegal alien scumbags after they've been incarcerated..

DRW got it right - no BUSINESS should ever have to pay any tax at all!! It's PEOPLE that call the PD and FD, drop their animals off at the city pound, flush their toilets and water their lawns, flip on their light switches, check out books and DVDs at libraries, and drive around on surface roads.

When's the last time you saw a delivery truck just driving itself down the street or a "We're Open" sign calling the cops, hmmm?

TAX PEOPLE who use all that worthless crap and not BUSINESSES!!

I'm not saying all Latinos are like Paco, but way to many millions are. Pathetic. Keep voting Democrat, you will see it just get worse. The Democratic Party and liberals are doing everything in there power to change America. They want a progressive, socialist at any cost. If you have conservative values they would you rather be dead.

Paco can eat my taco. Los Angeles has a high business tax in order to pay for the loss of all those illegal street vendors that constantly sprout up with no license!!

You ever wonder how Paco and his taco friends wash their hands when they have to relieve themselves. Well they don't. Think about that when they provide you with those extra "ingredients". Enjoy!
