The California Schools & Local Communities Funding Act of 2018 will:
- Restore over $10 billion a year in revenue for our schools and local communities by closing the Prop. 13 Corporate Loophole.
- NOT raise taxes on homeowners, renters, or small businesses.
- Help small businesses by eliminating the burdensome business personal property tax while also leveling the playing field for new businesses.
- Mandate full transparency and accountability for all revenue restored to California’s schools and local communities.
Prop. 13 was passed to protect people, not large corporations. Meanwhile, Trump’s federal tax bill is a massive tax giveaway to large corporations paid for by raising taxes on Californians and slashing funding for our schools and vital community services. In California the Prop. 13 Corporate Loophole benefits these same large corporations at the expense of homeowners, renters and small businesses.
The California Schools and Local Communities Funding Act of 2018 closes this loophole and is the only fair way to restore billions of dollars of reliable revenue every year for our schools and local communities without raising taxes on homeowners, renters, or small businesses. Join a growing statewide coalition of community groups, educators, parents, local community leaders and more than 250 organizations that are supporting this commonsense and desperately needed reform.
