PROP 15 HIKES TAXES ON FAMILY FARMS, DRIVING UP FOOD PRICES FOR CALIFORNIA CONSUMERS
Prop 15, the largest property tax hike in state history, will hike taxes on every step of producing our food supply from the farm to the dinner table. This means higher food costs for Californians at the worst possible time.
A TAX ON CALIFORNIA’S FOOD SUPPLY
Prop 15 will undo important, long-standing property tax protections for commercial and agricultural property that voters approved via Prop 13 many decades ago. that means higher taxes on farmers, their crops, and the entire food supply chain.
With Prop 15, consumers will face higher food prices at a time when many Californians are already struggling with COVID and our state’s high cost of living.
deceptive measure HURTs BOTH FARMERS AND CONSUMERS
Prop 15 backers now say their measure won’t impact agriculture. This is categorically false. The independent, nonpartisan state Legislative Analyst’s Office, California Assessors’ Association and the LA Times have all found that Prop 15 will hike taxes on agricultural property.
