Join The Arizona Tax Revolt

The Arizona Tax Revolt

The Arizona Resistance would like to help spread the word about the wonderful things the good people at the Arizona Tax Revolt are doing.  Please visit them by clicking on their logo above or here at www.arizonataxrevolt.org

The Arizona Resistance proudly endorses the efforts of The Arizona Tax Revolt.

Property taxes have been funding many of the programs that support illegal aliens. It is estimated that 20% of the K-12 students in Arizona schools are illegal aliens that do not belong in this country. As long as government is allowed to increase our taxes there is little incentive for them to close the borders and crack down on the employers that would sell our country down the river for a good quarterly profit report.

Read more about our plan at http://www.ArizonaTaxRevolt.ORG and join the effort by filling out the “volunteer form.” A little bit of your time and a few dollars now will go a long way to solving the illegal alien situation by cutting off at least some of our tax dollars. In addition the measures will make property taxes predictable and affordable so that law abiding US citizens will not be taxed out of their homes.

  3. Prop 13 Arizona brings the property tax protections of California’s Prop 13 to our state.

    Please read the actual text of our initiative at http://www.Prop13Arizona.com.

    Its easy to understand and you can calculate what your tax bill will be when our initiative is passed into law.

    Then take the time to read the actual text of the Tax Revolt initiative at http://www.ArizonaTaxRevolt.org. Compare it to Prop 13 Arizona and decide which you want to support.

    Prop 13 Arizona rolls back valuations to 2003 or purchase price thereafter, caps total tax at 1/2 of 1% for residential property and 1% for other real property, limits increases to 2% per year, and eliminates exceptions and overrides.

    We appreciate your consideration and support.

    Lynne Weaver
    Prop 13 Arizona, Chairman

  4. In fairness to equal opportunity and choice, we welcome Ms. Weaver’s information in regards to Prop 13.

    However, If we are looking at California as a suggested example… all I see from that state is failure on a monumental scale.

    I invite any and all to join in this discussion of the best course of action regarding property taxes.

    I for one, generally speaking, look at California as an example of everything that is wrong with property taxes. I promise to look more deeply into it.

    Thank you Lynne.

  5. I would encourage everyone to look more closely at these propositions and think well about this issue. Unfortunately we are being guided by rhetoric that is full of half truths and hidden agendas.

    Prop 13 type legislation or tax revolt initiatives that blanket all secondary taxing agencies are irresponsible and WILL do harm, especially to those smaller special taxing districts and specifically those who have worked to be good stewards of the taxpayer’s dollar.

    I work in a small fire district whose tax rate was adjusted down to account for massive increases in property assesments over the past couple of years. We stood almost alone in our efforts to combat rising tax bills for our constituants. I regret that many of our “peers” in government did not take the same approach, but we did.

    As a result of our efforts we stand to lose big if these intiatives are passed. We work in a rapidly growing area where infrastructure is struggling to keep up with growth under the current tax structure. If our budget was limited to that of 2003 and further limited by 1% growth annually, we would in fact lay off firefighters and close fire stations. Even if we could survive on our 2003 budget, which isn’t a reality, we could not sustain our current workforce at 1% growth. That does not cover cost of living increases, double digit increases in healthcare costs, or increasing contributions to the state retirement system. Notice I have not even spoken about fire trucks, fire stations, or other service related expenses. If you appreciate your local fire service, you would not implement any of the propositions described thus far.

    I agree that the tax burden on the average Arizonan is rising at an unspeakable rate. That said, there are already measures in place to limit fire districts specifically. Currently, fire districts are limited to a cap of $3.25 per $100.oo of secondary assesed value on residential properties. This was recently increased from $3.00 based on the fact that fire districts, and specifically smaller fire districts, could not continue to keep up with growth at the previous cap.

    In addition to the tax ceiling for fire districts, they are governed by local fire boards which ARE ACCOUNTABLE TO YOU. if you are upset with the fiscal managment in your local fire district, I would encourage you to launch a recall effort on your board members and affect change locally.

    It may be difficult for some of you to believe but I am a republican and a fiscal conservative. I would support limiting tax growth in areas other than public safety. If someone has the good sense to recognize the damage that this would do to small, locally controlled fire agencies, and if they had the courage to write a bill/proposition that limited our tax burden while preserving our public safety resources, I would be the first to support it. In the absence of public safety considerations however, I will not support the “tax revolt” and will encourage anyone who might read this to do the same.

    Thank you,

    Bryan
