We are volunteers helping to restore Prop 58 that provided tax
protection of inherited property. This massive effort by the people of California will hopefully place the initiative on the 2024 ballot. Prop 19 took away the tax protection. As a result, families were forced to sell their forever home because
they couldn’t afford the new tax bill.
Prop 19 resulted in an unexpected crushing annual tax burden for hundreds of thousands of ordinary Californians who have just lost their parents. Fixing Prop 19 will help provide tax relief for older homeowners, reverse the massive tax penalty and remove the unfair restrictions placed on inherited property. It will restore taxes to an affordable level and allow families to remain in their community.
Nowhere in the paid advertising was it stated that citizens would lose their taxpayer protections under Prop 58. Not mentioned was how it would also likely generate more house sales and broker commissions. Many Californians have no idea their property rights were taken from them - until they got the tax bill!
Prop 19 was rushed through the legislature in less than a week. The language was ambiguous and unclear. Bad policies became bad laws devastating working class property owners. It resulted in the largest property tax increase in California history driven by special interests. Many voters were unaware what they were voting for.
If the inheritor of a "mom and pop" rental property can't afford the huge property tax hike, they will be forced to sell the property. What happens to the tenants?
Middle and low income families are affected. Prop 19 resulted in a devastating annual tax burden for vulnerable citizens especially those on a fixed income. This is not what voters intended. Help us right a wrong! SIGN THE PETITION NOW!

CAR once again drafted a ballot measure and was requested by the Legislators to set theirs aside.
