“I am asking you to support the Make It Fair proposal to reform Proposition 13. It would make California’s biggest corporations pay taxes on the actual value of their property, raising $9 billion for the state. These funds are critical to making California more self-reliant in the face of massive budget cuts that the Trump administration has aimed at our schools, hospitals, roads, libraries, parks, public transit, and other essential services.
The time has come to close the loopholes and take back the tax giveaways to help our local communities respond to the federal cuts and level the playing field so all commercial properties are assessed based on their actual value. The big corporations, millionaires and billionaires being asked to pay their share can afford it, and even after this measure takes effect California’s commercial property taxes will still be among the lowest in the nation.
As a Californian who cares about my community and the prosperity of our state, we must fix the commercial property tax system to ensure a level playing field and make big corporations and wealthy real estate investors pay their fair share. I ask that you please do everything in your power to support the Make It Fair Campaign.”
