    A landlord group has gone to court seeking to compel the city to reword part of the ballot language of a proposed business license tax hike on residential property going before voters Nov. 8.

Those exemptions -- in particular, one that exempts a dwelling unit from the tax increase for 12 years from the time it is issued a certificate of occupancy -- and their financial implications are at the heart of a lawsuit filed by the Berkeley Rental Housing Coalition in Alameda County Superior Court this week.
