Golly gee, how is this happening in the middle of a supposed “government shutdown”?
From what we’re told, “around” 800,000 federal employees have been furloughed (but will be paid back in full for days worked) due to President Trump’s partial shutdown of the federal government.

Just when you thought California’s Democrat governor, State Senate and the State Assembly couldn’t squeeze the people of California out of another cent, the Democrats have somehow managed to ratchet down the thumbscrews just a little bit tighter.

It is effective starting with the 2012 tax year.
If you thought that sky-high personal income, home, and auto taxes weren’t high enough, guess again.
