Californians already pay the highest taxes in the country, but Reform California Chairman Carl DeMaio is fighting to change that by forcing a statewide vote on the California Taxpayer Protection Act — a ballot initiative that will appear on the November 2024 statewide ballot that would make it harder for state and local politicians to impose costly and unfair tax hikes in the future.
DeMaio and Reform California volunteers helped collected the1.4 million signatures to place the California Taxpayer Protection Act on the ballot. Now we must prepare for the campaign to win the YES vote on this landmark tax reform proposal!
Once passed, the “California Taxpayer Protection Act” (CTPA)will supersede and nullify many of tax hikes imposed by state and local politicians after January 1, 2022 - and it would close loopholes politicians have exploited in recent years to impose tax hikes. That nullification provision would immediately produce tax savings for Californians.
The measure would also strengthen the requirement that local tax hikes must receive two-thirds voter approval to go into effect. In addition, the measure would combat false and misleading ballot titles currently used by state and local politicians to deceive voters into voting for ballot items that contain hidden tax hikes.
