Reform Prop. 13
The Best Way to Fight Back
California is facing billions of dollars in federal budget cuts. It's time to fight back and raise our own revenue by reforming Proposition 13. Prop. 13 passed in 1978 as a way to help homeowners. What most people don't know is that because of a corporate loophole in Prop. 13, large corporations have benefited the most. This loophole has increased the tax burden on individuals and decimated funding for our schools and public services.
It's Time for Large Corporations to Pay Their Fair Share
We are running a statewide, grassroots campaign to close the corporate loophole in Prop. 13 while maintaining protections for all residential property owners. This common-sense reform will help California resist federal budget cuts by generating $9 billion a year for our schools and public services.
Over the last four decades, while commercial property owners have saved billions of dollars, homeowners have increasingly shouldered the vast majority of the tax burden. Chevron alone is pocketing over $100 million a year because they are still paying property taxes based on what their land was worth in the 1970s. This isn’t fair. Now more than ever, this must change!
