Bay area cities requiring land lords and others to pay a city business Tax. Along with Hayward, San Leandro, Union City, Oakland and others San Jose Has implemented an Annual City Business Tax.

Older News; Several Rental property owners have complained.
San Leandro is getting into each rental property owners pocket book for the business license fee of $36.50 license and a unit fee of $6.00 per unit owned. A few years back the San Leandro Rent Stabilization Board limited rent increases to a maximum of $75.00 per year
At least San Leandro is not conduction mandatory rental inspections as Hayward does. Hayward rental owners are required to have a city building inspector do a code compliance/ safety inspection every few years on all rentals in the city limits and the owners must pay for the inspection but so far Hayward is not hitting owners for a annual business license fee for each rental they own. Union City has a business license fee. Oakland also has a business license fee and rental income tax as well as places a cap on rent increases like other communities there are exceptions like capital increased of operating costs and improvement costs, repair costs not covered by insurance, increased mortgage costs and a fair rate of return on investment for owners.
