OPINION: Unaffordable California – It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way

California has one of the nation’s worst tax climates and it’s getting worse, writes San Diego Tax Fighters chairman Richard Rider in the CaliforniaPolicyCenter.org forum.  Rider’s analysis found California’s taxes to be in the nation’s top ten in every category except property tax.  In addition, Rider notes California’s capital gains tax is the second highest in the world, and we are the only state with a cap and trade tax.
