General

There has been a “split roll” campaign growing in California to remove some of the Proposition 13 protections from commercial properties as a way to increase revenues. ¬†There have been variations on the proposed changes, but all boil down to trying to tax commercial properties at values greater than the standard Proposition 13 limited values, which generally increase 2% per year. ¬†Originally, proponents of the change were targeting the 2018 ballot for the referendum, but that has been pushed back to 2020.
