By Jack Dean | California has one of the nation’s worst tax climates and it’s getting worse, writes Richard Rider in the California Policy Center’s Prosperity Forum. Rider’s analysis found California’s taxes to be in the nation’s top ten in every category except for its property tax. In addition, Rider notes that California’s capital gains tax is the second highest in the world, and we are the only state with a cap-and-trade tax.
My longtime friend and political ally Richard Rider is chairman of the San Diego Tax Fighters. He was named Taxfighter of the Year in 2009 by the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association.
