AT&T v. County of Riverside


AT&T sued Riverside County in 2019 alleging that the rate the method used by the County to levy taxes on AT&T’s property resulted in a tax rate higher than what is allowed under the California Constitution. DWA intervened in this case because the ruling could impact DWA tax revenue, requiring DWA to increase its tax rate applied to other local property owners. This would require DWA to charge other residents and businesses more.

Current Status

The judge has not heard the case yet. The Court of Appeals recently dismissed a similar case filed against Santa Clara County.
