Local governments are trying to take advantage of the “disaster loophole” to ignore the 3.5% tax cap established in Senate Bill 2 and raise property taxes by 8%. Sign the petition to remind government that:

✅ Texans cannot afford a huge tax increase right now;

✅ They should abide by the 3.5% property tax rate cap in SB2;

✅ A government-imposed shutdown doesn’t warrant a huge tax increase to make up for the deficit;

✅ They should focus on allowing businesses to reopen and getting Texans back to work.

Let local governments know that Texans CANNOT afford higher taxes, especially during a pandemic, sign the petition 👇
