Proposition 38 Explained

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Proposition 38 is a competing proposition with Proposition 30.  If Prop. 38 receives more votes, personal income taxes would be raised in our state for Californians earning more than $7,316 per year.  The tax increase would be on a sliding scale.   The lowest earners would pay an additional 0.4% in income tax.  The highest earners would be taxed 2.2% more.  Money raised from the taxes would fund K-12 schools, among other things.

Below are links to the supporters and opponents of Prop. 38 to learn more.

    No on Prop 38 – it's a big new tax. How big? Check the math: a married couple earning $70K will pay $719 more in tax the first year, and the bill will go up by the CPI every year. A couple earning $90K will pay over $1000; earn $110K and you'll pay $1400 more. That's a lot of child care, or car payments, or food! The purpose is noble and fantastic, but crushing the Californian economy with even higher state taxes will be a disaster.
