PA 790: Administering Tax and Debt Policies: Prevailing Issues Class Visits SF City Hall

 

IMG_8041Dr. Wang took her PA790 students to the City Hall Tax Collector Office in March 2016. They met Treasurer, Jose Cisneros, and Tax Collector, David Augustine. They shared the history of the SF Office of Tax Collector, a number of detailed tax regulations, the change of tax from payroll to gross receipts, “sharing economy” (or “gig economy”) and challenges of a modernizing and decentralizing economy for local government revenue in addition to taking questions. The Public Administration Program is grateful for the investment in time from the Office of the Treasurer, as it has shaped our students understanding of the role of different departments in municipal government and the power of those bodies to improve the standard of living for all residents.
