Call to Action

CalTax is fighting to save Proposition 13 and stop higher property taxes.

An initiative on the November ballot would eliminate Proposition 13 protections for many properties in California, resulting in higher rent for countless small businesses, and higher prices for just about everything we buy and use (including groceries, fuel, utilities, day care and health care). Click here to read more about why CalTax opposes this harmful tax increase.

In the state Capitol, two measures (ACA 1 and SCA 5) would pave the way for higher taxes on all types of property, leading to higher costs for homeowners, renters and businesses. We’re also fighting legislative proposals that could make their way to the ballot: a sales tax on services, taxpayer-funded universal healthcare, and efforts to expand local taxing authority.

CalTax is working hard to defeat these tax increases, but we can’t do it alone. Email Chloe Bowman at chloe@caltax.org for information on how you can help us save Proposition 13.
