Fees-500x500.pngThe Oceanside Chamber Joins San Diego Business Coalition to Oppose the Vehicle Mileage Tax
In 2021, 18 Chambers of Commerce came together to form the San Diego Business Coalition. Our goal is to educate the community and businesses about proposed policies that will negatively impact San Diegans.

San Diego Elected Officials are looking to impose a new VEHICLE MILEAGE TAX to charge drivers PER MILE that we drive. This pilot program will then be implemented for all California drivers.

  • 80-cent-per-gallon INCREASE - The Vehicle Mileage Tax would require tracking every driver's mileage and charging them $0.04-$0.06 per mile they drive. That is the equivalent of an $0.80 per gallon increase in gas tax.
  • $600-800 a year - The typical San Diegan driver will be forced to pay $600-800 more a year to drive on roads they already paid for with the original gas and sales taxes. When added with the current car and gas tax, a two-car family is looking at over $3,000 a year in taxes.

  • LOSS OF PRIVACY - The Mileage Tax is an invasion of privacy with a tracking requirement that is still being decided by the government. Proposals include a device installed in every vehicle, a tracking app on cell phones, or your odometer being inspected annually.

pexels-karol-d-325153 (1).jpgWarranties: Understand Your Consumer Rights Before You Buy
By District Attorney Summer Stephan
You never know when life – or a manufacturer – might throw you a lemon. That’s why consumers should understand what warranties will and will not cover. A product may be defective upon delivery or become defective over time. Product warranties acknowledge this possibility and generally allow consumers to seek product repair, replacement, or refund within a designated time after purchase. More details.

(Source: SDG&E)
When you run a business, controlling your costs is a priority. Here are some easy tips to help reduce your energy use and bills. 

  1. Power down your office equipment (monitors, printers, lights) when not in use to reduce unnecessary power drain.
  2. Close curtains, shades and blinds, particularly during unoccupied times. Too much sun exposure inside can put a strain on your HVAC equipment – making it work harder than necessary.
  3. Keep your HVAC equipment running efficiently. Clean condenser coils, replace air filters and check ducts and pipe insulation for damage.
