PROP 15 HURTS FAMILY FARMERS AND RANCHERS​

Prop 15 is the largest property tax hike in state history. It includes deceptive provisions that hit agriculture with higher taxes, Hurting Family Farmers and Consumers.

Prop 15 Eliminates Tax Protections for Family Farms and ranches

Prop 15, would undo important, long-standing property tax protections for commercial and agricultural property that voters approved via Prop 13 many decades ago.

Prop 15 backers say their measure won’t impact agriculture. Multiple nonpartisan sources have proven this to be false, including the independent, nonpartisan state Legislative Analyst’s Office and California Assessors’ Association. Prop 15 will expose farmers and ranchers to steep property tax hikes on all “fixtures and improvements,” ranging from barns to fruit trees.
