Proposition 19: Property Tax Transfers Exemptions, and Revenue for Wildfire Agencies

Position: No

The Libertarian Party of California opposes Proposition 19 because it is ultimately a tax increase. The authors of Proposition 19 took an initiative from a previous election cycle that would allow for property tax mobility (which is a good thing) but added provisions that would result in a massive property tax increase expected to be in the hundreds of millions of dollars, as well as creating a loophole to reassess inherited properties that were previously protected by the original Proposition 13. We cannot support these modifications and we flatly reject this tax increase.
