Measure Z will raise the sales tax in Riverside from 8% to 9% to fund the repairs of streets, potholes and infrastructure. The Measure, placed on the ballot by the City Council, is a "general" tax, which means that the City of Riverside may use the tax revenues for any governmental purpose (for example, repairs of streets, potholes, and infrastructure, as well as maintaining the City's long-term nancial stability). Although Measure Z is entitled "transactions and use tax" it is commonly referred to as a sales tax. With some exceptions, transactions and use tax is levied on the sale or use of tangible personal property sold at retail. Retailers collect the tax at the time of sale and remit the funds to the State Board of Equalization, which administers the tax, including transmitting payment to the City.  See recent Measure Z news
