Radio ad campaign marks 40 years of protecting Prop. 13 and taxpayers

The Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association marked the 40th anniversary of Proposition 13 with a radio ad campaign highlighting the success of the landmark tax-limiting measure and the importance of protecting California taxpayers.

The ad campaign began on June 6 and ran for several weeks on multiple stations in cities throughout California. HJTA President Jon Coupal’s voice was heard speaking these words:

“This year marks the 40th anniversary of Proposition 13, the historic tax revolt initiative that puts a limit on how much property taxes can go up and requires voter approval for other tax increases. Proposition 13 has protected millions of Californians from being taxed out of their own homes. It’s also helped state and local governments by keeping property taxes stable and growing steadily, instead of bouncing around with the volatile real estate market.”

“Californians already pay the highest state income tax, highest sales tax, highest gas and car tax, and among the highest business taxes. So it’s no surprise that Sacramento politicians and special interests would like to dismantle Proposition 13 and raise property taxes too. But together we can stop them. We’re the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association and we’ve defended Prop. 13 for 40 years. Learn more, and join us, at HJTA.org.”
