Voter Warning: Don’t Sign Deceptive Petition Claiming to “Save Prop 13”

Voter Warning: Don’t Sign Deceptive Petition Claiming to “Save Prop 13”

The tax-raisers in California are at it again – and voters need to beware!

Signature collection has commenced on a ballot measure that would gut Prop 13 property tax limitations.  Known as “split-roll,” the initiative would impose a massive tax hike on all commercial, industrial and retail properties. The tax hike would lead to cost increases on virtually everything and everyone.

Politicians have already given the tax-hike measure a deceptively attractive title of “Increases Funding for Schools, Community Colleges, and Local Government Services by Changing Tax Assessment of Commercial and Industrial Property.”

Conveniently, this title for the ballot measure removes any mention of the real proposal – A MASSIVE TAX INCREASE.

What’s worse, proponents of this tax hike initiative are now collecting signatures in front of stores with signs that say “Save Prop 13!”

Backers of this tax hike measure need over 1 million signatures of registered voters to place the item on the November 2020 ballot. 

By hiding the true nature of the ballot initiative with a misleading title – and by outright lying to voters in front of stores to get signatures – the backers of this tax hike measure have shown they are absolutely comfortable resorting to fraud to impose their tax hike.

If you want to protect Prop 13 and stop massive tax hikes in California, you need to do two things IMMEDIATELY:

  1. Spread the word: Voters are urged to NOT SIGN the petition and to spread the word to friends, family and colleagues.
  2. Contribute to Oppose the Tax Hike: Reform California is raising funds to oppose this tax hike in the November 2020 election. Please contribute whatever you can today and urge your friends to do the same!

No tax increase will ever be big enough to satisfy the wasteful spending of Sacramento politicians! Help defend Prop 13 today!
