California Balks At Internet Sales Tax
it's one of those FUNDAMENTALLY FLAWED ideas that nobody wants to do anything about. How is it flawed idea to allow people to stay in the homes they had previously bought and planned to spend the rest of their life in (or a good portion of it)?
Without prop 13 a lot of elderly people would be living out on the streets or at the very least forced out of their current home and perhaps out of the state altogether. If you buy a home at a certain value and expect to pay a certain yearly tax for it, is it really fair if that tax goes up 10% a year when you haven't made any changes to your home ??
