This referendum allows a new homestead exemption from city property taxes only for persons living in a city that is located in more than one county, that levies a sales tax for public transit and has an independent public school system. It would exempt city taxes in an amount equal to the amount by which the current year assessed value of a homestead exceeds the adjusted base year value of such homestead.
A YES vote supports this measure to provide for a homestead property tax exemption in some cities equal to the difference between the home's assessed value for the current year and the adjusted base year value of the home.
A NO vote opposes this measure.
