Phone Script for Asm. Phil Ting
State Assemblyman Phil Ting (CA Assembly District 19)
Call Asm. Phil Ting about bills and policy in California.
Hello, my name is _______ and my zip code is _______. I am part of Indivisible SF.
I'm asking Asm. Ting to please remove the second home tax deduction from the current state budget.
With CA State Assembly budget negotiations in full swing, one obvious source of revenue has been overlooked: elimination of the mortgage interest and property tax deduction on second homes.
With countless Californians experiencing homelessness and so many others unable to afford to buy a primary residence, to continue to allow people to deduct mortgage interest and property taxes on second homes, either directly or as classified as charitable contributions, is the height of regressive tax policy and must be stopped.
