LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Among the one dozen propositions under consideration by California voters in the 2020 Election is Proposition 19, which if passed, would allow home sellers 55 and older to have the same property tax protection in every county in California.
The measure would be an incentive to older Californians who may have not previously considered changing homes, and it can offer property tax breaks to Californians who lost their home to a wildfire, an especially relevant benefit on the heels of several quick-spreading fires throughout the state.
With 65% of the votes reported as of 11:14 p.m. according to the Associated Press, 51.9% voted yes and 48.1% voted no on Prop. 19.
