CALIFORNIANS ALREADY PAY TOO MUCH IN TAXES


EVEN OUR OWN STATE EMPLOYEES LEAVE

AS QUICKLY AS THEY CAN AFTER RETIREMENT

Candidate Zellhoefer has the past endorsement of the Howard Jarvis taxpayers coalition. He knows that lower taxes promote the economy.

What is the matter with our elected officials in Sacramento and at our local county levels. When does their calls for ever increasing public services, and costs, face the reality of the taxpayers ability to pay.


This is not an issue of how much we would like to pay, it is a matter of how much can we pay!



TAXES ARE THE COSTS WE ALL MUST PAY TO PROVIDE THOSE SERVICES THAT WE CAN NOT, OR CHOOSE NOT, TO PROVIDE FOR OURSELVES. We as voters determine what taxes will be collected and to what extent they are collected. Always remember that we can all vote with our feet and leave. Many companies and small business owners have done just this.

THIS IS MY POSITION:

  • California needs to do away with all capital gains taxes for investments over three years
  • Business investments must be allowed to be expensed at all levels
  • Incentives for new eco-friendly technologies must be adopted
  • California needs to have a trade zone with our neighboring States whereby businesses in those States can do business in California without additional licenses, fees, or taxes
  • State sales taxes should be lowered to 5%
