Reduce property tax. Support replacing the property tax system with an alternative other than the income tax and requiring voter approval to increase the overall tax burden. (TXGOP Plank #178)
Support a simple, fair, and efficient method for financing our public school system. We oppose the “Robin Hood” system of public school finance and believe the Texas Legislature, not the courts, should determine the amount of money spent on public education and the distribution thereof. (TXGOP Plank #181)
The Texas Legislature should use surplus revenue to buy down the school maintenance and operation property tax rate as a prelude to replacing it with a broader based consumption tax. (TXGOP Plank #183)
Property owners are being taxed out of their homes and businesses. Texas would thrive under a Consumption Tax System where every business, entity, or person would pay a flat tax when purchasing goods or services.
