RHA opposition persuades fire district to put new property tax on hold

Strong opposition led by RHA Sacramento Valley persuaded the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District to put its proposed property tax assessment on hold. As a result of this decision, RHA saved rental property owners from paying a new annual assessment of $14 to $30 per unit.The fire district had been seeking a special vote-by-mail election to gain approval of a new "Fire Suppression Benefit Assessment."

RHA was the first business group to oppose the assessment and others quickly followed, including the Sacramento Taxpayers Association and Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association. The fire district agreed to meet with RHA before attempting any future property tax. Click here for more information.
