StopSJR14: Every Nevadan needs Affordable Housing

Tell candidates and electorate StopSJR14 to stop triple property tax, keep depreciation, keep market value ceiling and keep the 3%/8% Cap.

Raising Property taxes by double, or triple is the goal of SJR14

Don't be fooled, THIS BILL ALREADY VOTED FOR BY THE DEMOCRATS will devastate Nevada and the Democrats have vowed to vote for it again in 2019.  The amendment states it MAY help seniors and disabled.  We currently have many help programs and protections for property tax assistance. All republicans have vowed to defeat SJR14.  If you think you will be "protected" since you already own a home, think again. Transfer to a trust while you are there will trigger SJR14; and if you go to refi, or get a home equity, it would change the ownership and SJR14 would kick in.  Make no mistake. SJR14 makes owners captives, not customers, of the County.  How do we stop it?  VOTE REPUBLICAN FOR THE STATE SENATE(S1-S21) AND ASSEMBLY(A1-A42) to stop SJR14 to block stage 2 of the BI.

SJR14: There's no good in it....

SJR14 kills Affordable Housing

A.I Technocracy takeover would replace humans, who could afford to live here?

Without the cap, your tax bill won't be the red line, it will be the blue line

Then the blue line would be raised at will by individual counties.

1970 build Sold in 2020 with SJR14

1200 sq ft Old Northwest Reno property current taxes $677/yr would jump to  $2,264/yr for total increase of $133/month in tax. permanently for the next owner.

SJR14 makes Clark County NW property unaffordable

Current Residential Taxes with 3% Cap are $1309.00, without the cap they would be  the straight assessed value $3080.00.  

Less buyers, lower selling prices will occur

Home values will plummet below what is owed on the homes,  since a larger chunk of the monthly payment will need to go to the taxes.  Many buyers won't be able to afford home ownership, which is the goal of the bill.  

SJR14...Creates more homelessness and mass exodus

We analyzed the whole SJR14 document, minutes, and agenda notes. In NJ, a similar measures to "help"  fixed income residents continue in their housing programs, if they abandon their voter registration.

StopSJR14 Stealth Tax to double rents and property tax

Erases 3% & 8% Tax Cap

Allowing counties to eliminate caps means the tax arbitrarily can be raised for any reason at anytime. 

Rental chaos will abound

All property taxes for commercial and residential rents will increase since there will be no cap and no incentives for counties to lower them.

Triples property tax for all real estate

After one year of ownership (the reset year) or any title change, including transfer to a trust or between family members, the  tax will increase to the assessment level, the blue line on your tax bill.

SJR14 creates an elite class of homeowners

SJR14 Myths...actually lies

Myth:Only affects new builds

Truth: Affects any and all real estate transactions and is triggered by a title change, even a name change on a trust will launch the property into the  new higher tax scheme. 

Myth: Just Washoe County is affected

Truth: NV Constitution requires the tax code to be uniform statewide, every county is affected. 

Myth: The Governor can veto it

Truth: Ballot Initiatives are normally titled misleadingly to be perceived as for the public when the truth is they  are against the public, this one is no different. Introduced by Democrat Ratti, a yes vote in 2019 takes it right to the ballot where the people will be misled by millions of dollars spent on ads.  The Governor cannot veto a BI. 

Myth: Fixed income Nevadans are "protected or helped" by SJR14

Truth: It is our endowed liberty to own property freely; Noone need be tied to "extraneous privileges" to own property, such as revoking voter rights, or connecting property right to other rights.  SJR14 makes property an elitist activity, this is wrong for Nevada. 

Myth: Only improvements are taxed at the triple rate

Truth: The entire total assessed value  for land, buildings, and mineral rights are taxed at the new rate and EVERY TIME the house is resold it escalates to a higher bracket of taxable value. This would create total discrimination within the market itself.

Myth: Community infrastructure isn't keeping pace with need at current rates

Truth: Out of control spending is not need. Bloat is not necessity. Many of the taxes we currently pay are unconstitutional.  We The People provide for, and delegate to Government, only authority to assist us in claiming, using, and defending our rights. When they cease to do their job, they become illegitimate.

SJR14 Wall for Truth

"Counties need customers, not subjects.  There is no good in any form of imperialism, especially one that creates an elite class where wage earners will never realize the American Dream to own property".   ---Denise  Mraz, Founder of Don't California Our Nevada

"I am against this tax that not only is a sneaky way to once again fleece the citizens. It will also destroy our economic upswing while further raising home prices to make it even less affordable." -Eddie Lorton for Reno Mayor

 "I take the Ron Paul approach to coalitions. I may not agree 100% with every aspect of the organization's mission, so the big issues we can't agree on we won't bring up.  Of course, on StopSJR14 I couldn't agree more!"  Mon Bertolucci, Good Governance Radio Show, 1180AM America Matters Radio , Reno
