PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) – People are now saying they won’t be going to a north Phoenix restaurant anymore after they’ve started charging customers extra on their bill for “Prop 208.”

What has people angry is why they’re footing an income tax for the restaurant’s owner, when the owner may not even be taxed more at all.

Is something like this even legal? An attorney says the key here is it all comes down to if the restaurant lets people know before they eat, if a Prop 208 surcharge will be on their bill, and if they don’t, then it could be consumer fraud.


Help fund the litigation effort of a small business owner and retired Judge in challenging the constitutionality of Proposition 208.
