Kuo's Proposed $4.7M Utility Tax Rebate Gains Steam

IRVINE, California - Last night, the Irvine City Council voted to support Vice Mayor Anthony Kuo's proposal to rebate the entirety of the 2021-2022 User Utilities Tax.


"It's important to me to ensure that Irvine's Taxpayers get the public services and quality of life they deserve and pay for," Kuo said. "This year's extraordinary budget surplus gives us the opportunity to give back Taxpayer dollars to Taxpayers!" he added.


Irvine's 2021-2022 Budget anticipates close to a $30M surplus and Kuo's proposal would rebate $4.7M to those who have paid this 1.5% User Utilities Tax that has been in effect since the late 1980s. City staff was directed on a 4-1 vote to bring back options for how these taxes would be rebated to utility ratepayers.
