Call to Action

CalTax is fighting to save Proposition 13 and stop taxes that would make California even less affordable for residents and businesses.

In 2020, voters rejected the largest proposed property tax increase in state history. The ballot measure – Proposition 15 – would have eliminated 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).

Supporters of Proposition 15 have promised to reintroduce this flawed tax that would cost taxpayers an estimated $12 billion per year. That’s why taxpayers must stay vigilant and protect existing safeguards.

CalTax is working hard to defeat these unnecessary taxes, but we can’t do it alone. Email for information on how you can help.
