CALIFORNIANS TO SAVE PROP 13 & STOP HIGHER PROPERTY TAXES

CALIFORNIANS TO SAVE PROP 13 & STOP HIGHER PROPERTY TAXES

SAY NO TO THE $12.5 BILLION-A-YEAR PROPERTY TAX HIKE IN NOVEMBER

Amid an unprecedented economic crisis, special interests submitted petitions to qualify a measure for the November 2020 statewide ballot that will destroy Prop 13’s property tax protections and will be the largest property tax increase in California history. The measure will raise taxes on business property, which will ultimately get passed on to consumers in the form of increased costs on just about everything people buy and use, including groceries, fuel, utilities, day care and health care.

Your contribution to Californians to Save Prop 13 and Stop Higher Property Taxes is greatly needed. We must defeat the property tax hike measure in November 2020 and save Prop 13.

THERE ARE TOO MANY FLAWS IN THE PROPERTY TAX HIKE INITIATIVE

The $12.5 billion-a-year property tax hike has too many flaws and will increase the cost of living for all Californians. Learn the truth about the largest property tax increase in California history!

READ THE FLAWS

STOP THE $12.5 BILLION-A-YEAR PROPERTY TAX INITIATIVE THAT WILL INCREASE OUR COST OF LIVING.

Californians are suffering from one of the highest costs of living in the nation and can’t afford another $12.5 billion in higher taxes.

Hurts Small Businesses and Consumers


Most small businesses rent the property on which they operate. The measure’s higher property taxes will mean soaring rents at a time when the federal and state government is trying to provide small businesses with rent relief to keep their doors open. Ultimately, the measure’s tax hike on businesses will get passed on to consumers in the form of increased costs on just about everything people buy and use, including groceries, fuel, utilities, day care and health care.

California Families Can’t Afford a Higher Cost of Living


Californians face some of the steepest taxes in the country. We pay the highest income, state sales and gas taxes and our cost of living is already among the nation’s highest! This measure will drive the cost of living even higher and especially hurt families that are already struggling to get by.

No Accountability


This measure has no accountability to taxpayers. Sacramento politicians can divert the new local government tax money for other purposes that benefit special interests, just like they are trying to do with the gas tax.

No Taxpayer Protections


Don’t be fooled. Supporters say the property tax increase is about more money for schools, but more than two-thirds of the new tax money doesn’t go to schools. Instead, it goes to the state and local governments to spend however they want – just like they are doing with the lottery. There are absolutely NO education reforms and ZERO requirements that any of this new tax money will be used to improve school performance, reduce class size, or expand science, art, music, and after-school programs. Instead, the new money can be spent on administrative staff and outside consultants.

Homeowners Are Under Attack


If businesses lose their Prop 13 protections, homeowners will be next. Supporters of the measure even admitted that this initiative was the first step in a plan to end Prop 13, which could mean skyrocketing property tax increases for all California homeowners.

We should reject the property tax measure and maintain Prop 13 protections that have kept property taxes affordable and provided every taxpayer who buys a home, farm or business property with certainty that they can afford their property tax bills in the future. Now is not the time to raise taxes and bring more uncertainty to businesses and all Californians.
