BAY AREA, Calif. - Jan. 30, 2024 - PRLog -- Verb™ Presents Speaker Series welcomes Jon Coupal, President of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association ("HJTA") to discuss the Taxpayer Protection and Government Accountability Act.  Peter Coe Verbica, CFP®, Managing Director of Silicon Private Wealth, will moderate the discussion.  California taxes are among the highest in the nation; this voter initiative, co-sponsored by HJTA, seeks to close Proposition 13 "loopholes" by preventing an end-run around the two-thirds majority requirements (i.e., via citizen-initiative based "special taxes").  The new initiative also seeks to curtail the State's practice of massive tax and fee increases on fuel and DMV registrations, respectively.  Lastly, the initiative addresses the mislabeling of initiatives used as a tool to bamboozle California voters.

According to HJTA's website, "The Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association is dedicated to the protection of Proposition 13 and the advancement of taxpayers' rights, including the right to limited taxation, the right to vote on tax increases and the right of economical, equitable and efficient use of taxpayer dollars."  Mr. Coupal presides of the HJTA, reportedly 200,000 members strong.  He has appeared before the California Supreme Court, served as an attorney for the Pacific Legal Foundation, and also chairs the HJTA Foundation "which provides funding for taxpayer rights litigation and educational studies."

Peter Coe Verbica, a Certified Financial Planning® Professional, serves as moderator of the popular Verb™ Presents Speaker Series, which has featured former US Ambassadors (on the Russian-Ukraine War and China-Taiwan tensions), the former Deputy Director of the NSA (on cybersecurity), a former US Navy Admiral (on the importance of civility), a best-selling author and economist (on the exodus of corporate HQs and the middle class from California), a former US combat aviator (on leadership), a tax-law expert (on proposed changes to the US tax code), and many other distinguished guests (on issues such as US manufacturing, American Olympians, strategies to counter inflation, and California state and municipality unfunded liabilities' crises).  Mr. Verbica serves as a Managing Director at SPW and helps author the firm's timely thought pieces.  He and his family's roots are multi-generational in the Bay Area, including their link to California's second largest state park (Henry Coe State Park), the heart of which was donated by his family.
