HJTA http://kvpr.org en Anti-Tax Group Sues Over Fire Prevention Fee http://kvpr.org/post/anti-tax-group-sues-over-fire-prevention-fee <p>The Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association has filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of California property owners who are charged a fire prevention fee.</p><p>The suit by the anti-tax group claims the fee is really a tax requiring a two-thirds vote in the legislature. It seeks to overturn the fee, which costs property owners $150 for every habitable structure on their property.</p><p>The suit was filed against the California Department of Forestry and the Board of Equalization. But Association President Jon Coupal places the blame on the legislature.</p> Thu, 04 Oct 2012 21:24:43 +0000 Amy Quinton 4998 at http://kvpr.org Anti-Tax Group Sues Over Fire Prevention Fee
