Californians Remain Supportive of Property Tax Restrictions

They're all too familiar with their politicians


A new survey shows that most California voters oppose higher local taxes, according to a post from a leading anti-tax advocacy group. The survey comes from Probolsky Research, a Southern California research firm with an office in Sacramento, and was highlighted in a recent blog Monday by Jon Coupal, president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association.

According to the Probolsky survey, 55.5 percent of voters would vote down any measures that would hike local taxes, even if the increase would fund services. Coupal's blog links the survey results to what he says is continued support for Proposition 13, the state's landmark 1978 initiative that restricted future tax property tax hikes.
