Restore over $11 billion a year for services that all Californians rely on like schools and community colleges. $4.5 billion will support K-12 education and community colleges. The remainder will be shared by counties, cities and special districts to support community services.
Reform commercial property taxes, while guaranteeing existing protections for residential property and agricultural land.
Mandate full transparency and accountability for all revenue restored to California from closing the commercial property tax loophole.
Benefit small businesses in three ways: it exempts owner operated small businesses from reassessment until they are sold, it levels the playing field so small businesses can compete more fairly with big corporations, and it reduces their taxes by eliminating the property tax on fixtures and equipment for all small businesses.
Place California on par with the vast majority of states treatment of commercial property by assessing them at market value. This initiative only affects under-valued commercial properties, creating a level playing field for those businesses that pay their fair share.
Close the millionaire, billionaire, and big corporation tax loophole by requiring all commercial and industrial properties to be assessed at fair market value. California’s commercial property taxes will still be among the lowest in the country because of Proposition 13’s limits on property tax rates.
