Californians Can’t Afford Higher Property Taxes


New Calls for Higher Property Taxes

Property Tax Increases Hurt Small Businesses and Jobs

Protect Prop. 13!

Despite voters approving $6 billion in higher income and sales taxes last year, instead of cleaning up waste and abuse and prioritizing government spending on the programs most critical to California families, legislators and special interests are back for even higher taxes with a variety of proposals to increase property taxes.
According to a recent study, increasing property taxes via a so-called “split roll” scheme would:

  • Increase costs to California families and businesses by $6 billion dollars
  • Cost 396,345 jobs over the first five years
  • Disproportionately hurt small businesses, especially those owned by women and minorities.
Voters approved Prop 13 by a 65% vote in 1978 to protect property owners from drastically increasing property taxes that had threatened the existence of small business and the ability of families to stay in their homes. Prop 13 has worked well over the years – providing a stable, consistent, and growing revenue stream for local government and the state. We need jobs, not job killing tax increases, higher prices and higher property taxes. We must protect Prop 13 and stop efforts to increase property taxes!

Real Life Stories

“Small businesses like mine are already at our breaking point with the high cost of food, gas and benefits. If taxes are raised on our property, we will be forced to cut back on staff or pass our costs on to our customers, or both. Raising property tax is a really bad idea for everyone.”
