Amador Valley Joint Union High School District v. State Board of Equalization

California Supreme Court

583 P.2d 1281 (1978)

Facts

Cal. Const. art. XIIIA, § 2(a) stated that property was taxed at its value in the 1975–1976 fiscal year. But § 2(a) also stated that property acquired after the 1975–1976 fiscal year was taxed at its value on the date of acquisition. Thus, a person who purchased a home in 1975 was taxed less than a person who purchased a substantially identical home in 1977. Amador Valley Joint Union High School District (plaintiff) brought suit against the State Board of Equalization (defendant), contending that § 2(a) violated the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. The California Supreme Court had original jurisdiction to hear the case.
