Measure J is a one-cent sales tax increase approved by Palm Springs voters in 2011 to provide a source of revenue to maintain local community services while helping to economically revitalize the City’s downtown core. You have been paying that Measure J tax on every taxable purchase you make in Palm Springs for 13 years.

Applications that meet the Commission’s criteria will be considered for recommendation to the City Council for final approval.
