Proposition 13 Reform, Closing Corporate Tax Loophole - Nov. Ballot

This November, voters will finally have the opportunity to reform Prop 13--closing a corporate loophole that has allowed big business to pocket billions of dollars annually and restoring that funding to our local communities.

The California Schools and Local Communities Funding Act of 2018 will provide up to $10 billion every year in new funding for schools, health clinics, local services, and infrastructure.

The California Schools and Local Communities Funding Act of 2018 would reform large commercial property assessments - but preserve all protections from Proposition 13 that currently exist for residential, rental, agricultural or small commercial property. It would require property tax assessment of large commercial property every three years, but leave unchanged conditions of property assessment for small business owners, homeowners, renters and agricultural business owners, keeping all tax assessments at 1% and capping yearly increases at 2%. These changes would result in up to $10 billion in new revenue for K-12 schools and other essential government services. If the measure gets enough signatures, it will appear on the November 6, 2018 ballot.

The League of Women Voters of California has taken the lead in submitting this initiative for circulation on behalf of the many groups working together in the coalition.

Now we need your help to get it on the ballot and ensure it passes in November!
