1972 – 50 years of service to the commercial industrial retail real estate industry – 2022.

We applaud a significant piece of the budget the Governor signed, AB 28x, which ends special treatment for online-only retailers. This legislation helps close a loophole that until now has put thousands of California businesses at a competitive disadvantage against out-of-state, online-only retailers to avoid collecting sales taxes.

California’s brick and mortar-based companies have been trying to correct this unfair tax treatment for a long-time. We still hope that a national solution can be agreed upon, but in the meantime, states like California absolutely must act in this manner to protect taxpayers and job providers.

We thank the Governor and Assemblymember Skinner and Senators Calderon and Hancock for their pragmatic leadership on this issue, and our members thank them for their dogged determination.
