Proposition 6 has been a thorn in many people's sides. This proposition was supposed to set a property tax on vehicles for all people who use their cars/trucks for business. This wouldn't just effect REALTORS®, but also landscape people, Mary Kay people, Avon people, HVAC repair people, etc... basically, anyone who has to use their vehicle to drive around to meet with their clients and customers.
The proposition passed overwhelmingly with 74%!!
Personally, I can't believe 26% voted against this. Who are those 26%?? What were they thinking? They must have been corporate world people who had no idea what they were voting against... unless they voted NO because they thought a NO would mean they didn't want it, as it was confusing to say you needed to vote YES for NOT having the tax. I hate double negatives.
ANyway, bottomline, at this time, we will not be taxes on our cars... but keep an eye out for this coming up again as this is not the first go-around trying to pass this tax.
