Nix parcel tax and phase out value cap
Should we be phasing out the assessed value cap of Proposition 13 to raise revenue instead of adding a parcel tax? (“CUSD parcel tax headed to November ballot,” Aug. 7).
I work in the Santa Clara County Office of the Assessor. I speak to people frequently about their property taxes. If the Proposition 13 value cap was intended to help everyone, I can say with confidence that it has failed.
