VOTE NO
ON PROP 15

We can’t afford Prop 15’s $11.5 billion property tax increase.

Home

 

Small business tenants will be legally required to pay for Prop 15’s property tax increase under the terms of their lease agreements. Prop 15’s skyrocketing property tax increase will get passed along to small businesses, who will have no choice but to raise prices on all of us or shut their doors forever.

Ultimately, the $11.5 billion property tax increase will raise everyone’s cost of living for everything we buy and use like gas, utilities, health care, childcare, groceries, restaurants, barbershops, and nail salons.

Now is not the time to increase the cost of living.

 

DON’T BE DECEIVED. IF PROP 15 PASSES,

WE’LL ALL BE PAYING MORE

 

“Vote no on Prop. 15. A vast tax hike during a deep recession is a crazy idea.”

 


“The higher taxes in many cases would be passed on to the tenants of those commercial and industrial property owners. In short, it’s a tax on businesses, often small businesses, at a time when they can least afford it.”

 


“Property owners could simply pass on the tax increases to their tenants, causing even more business closures and job losses.”

 


“Passing Proposition 15 would pummel California’s economy at the very worst time. … This measure would raise the cost of living, as grocery stores, retailers and other businesses face higher costs. Increases to California’s cost of living fall hardest on those with less means.”

 

LEADING SOCIAL JUSTICE, BUSINESS, AND
TAXPAYER ADVOCACY GROUPS OPPOSE PROP 15

 

California NAACP President Alice Huffman says NO to Prop 15.

“Prop 15’s higher property taxes will hurt minority-owned small businesses the most — increasing their rents and causing many to go under, which will make systemic racism and inequality worse. Now is not the time to raise taxes.”

 

California Hispanic Chambers of Commerce President and CEO Julian Canete says NO to Prop 15.

“Prop 15, the largest property tax increase in state history, will devastate minority-owned small businesses and hurt thousands of workers who rely on these jobs to feed their families.”

 

California Farm Bureau Federation President Jamie Johansson Says Vote NO on Prop 15.

“Prop 15 hurts family farmers, and we all will end up paying higher costs for groceries including milk, produce, and meat.”
