California High Taxes & So-Called Balanced Budget





HJTA-150x1502By Erik Rosales

Have you stopped to consider how high your taxes are?

If you live in California, you are taxed at a higher rate than nearly any other state.

Some say California taxes you for everything.

It has some of the steepest sales tax, personal income tax and corporate tax rates in the nation.

Jon Coupal is the President of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association.

Coupal says, “We have about 40 million people in California and it’s only a couple of hundred thousand who pay 40 percent of the income tax. When you think about that it is one of the problems we have in California, an over reliance on a small handful of taxpayers.”

The Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association is a legal and political watchdog organization that follows state regulations and initiatives.

Coupal says California will never grow out of this recovery, unless we have a vibrant economic recovery. He says that will not happen unless we change the way we do business. Many are reaching the tipping point with the tax and regulations. We love California but it’s just becoming too burdensome.”
