Everyone wants good schools for our children, healthy families and safe neighborhoods. But for more than 40 years, big corporations have not been paying their fair share. California is 39th in per pupil spending, and has the most overcrowded classrooms in the US!
Schools and Communities First - on the November 2020 ballot - will close commercial property tax loopholes benefiting a very small number of corporations and wealthy investors. IT WILL NOT CHANGE TAXES FOR HOMEOWNERS, RENTERS OR SMALL BUSINESSES AT ALL.
This measure will reclaim over $12 billion per year for K-12 schools, community colleges and local communities. It will provide large tax incentives to spur new investment in small business. It will level the playing field for all the businesses that already to pay their fair share of property taxes. It ensures strict accountability so that money goes directly to students and communities.
