In March of 1994, Proposal A was approved by the voters. As a result, a taxable value can only be increased by the Consumer Price Index (CPI) or 5% whichever is less, except for new construction or demolition. Effective in 1995, a property's taxable value is capped at this rate until the property is transferred.
