In 2021, 18 Chambers of Commerce came together to form the San Diego Business Coalition. Our goal is to educate the community and businesses about proposed policies that will negatively impact San Diegans.San Diego Elected Officials are looking to impose a new VEHICLE MILEAGE TAX to charge drivers PER MILE that we drive. This pilot program will then be implemented for all California drivers.
- 80-cent-per-gallon INCREASE – The Vehicle Mileage Tax would require tracking every driver’s mileage and charging them $0.04-$0.06 per mile they drive. That is the equivalent of an $0.80 per gallon increase in gas tax.
- $600-800 a year – The typical San Diegan driver will be forced to pay $600-800 more a year to drive on roads they already paid for with the original gas and sales taxes. When added with the current car and gas tax, a two-car family is looking at over $3,000 a year in taxes.
- LOSS OF PRIVACY – The Mileage Tax is an invasion of privacy with a tracking requirement that is still being decided by the government. Proposals include a device installed in every vehicle, a tracking app on cell phones, or your odometer being inspected annually.
You Don’t Get a Vote – Our elected officials are voting on this with SANDAG and we encourage you to understand what this tax means to you and make your voice heard if you oppose it. Join us in making your voice heard here.
