Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association appeals dismissal of fire tax lawsuit, continues to fight for refunds
March 6, 2018
Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association (HJTA) filed its Notice of Appeal in the fire prevention fee case on March 1st.
The annual fire prevention fee has been halted. The State of California will no longer be billing the fee. However, the trial court judge threw out the HJTA case for refunds of past payments.
Besides the appeal, HJTA is supporting a bill in the Legislature, Senate Bill 1044, that would allow fee payers to apply for a refund of all fees they paid in the past.
Passing Senate Bill 1044 will be an uphill battle, even though the State has a large budget surplus. For more information about the bill and how you can get involved, click here.
