What Every Businessperson Must Know About Prop 15, the $12.5 Billion-A-Year Property Tax Hike on the November Ballot
California is in the midst of an unprecedented economic crisis, and yet another threat is on the horizon
for small businesses.
Prop 15 on the November ballot will be the largest property tax increase in state history at $12.5 billion
Unless defeated by voters, the measure shreds long-standing Prop 13 protections that have kept
property taxes affordable and provided every taxpayer that buys a home or operates business with
certainty that they can afford their property tax bills in the future. Prop 15 repeals these protections for
business property by requiring reassessment at current market value at least every three years.
Prop 15’s higher property taxes will cause rents to skyrocket for small businesses and the cost of living to increase for all Californians. That’s why small businesses, farmers, social justice organizations, and taxpayer advocates across California oppose this massive tax increase.
Why should everyone be concerned about Prop 15?
The Oxnard Chamber Board of Directors strongly opposes Prop 15. The Chamber's Political Action Committee sent a financial Contribution to the NO on Prop 15 campaign. For more information, go to https://noonprop15.org/.
