FILE - In this Feb. 12, 2020, file photo, a housing development stands in El Dorado Hills, Calif.

Since 1978, California has limited tax increases to 2% a year until a property is sold. With prices climbing at a much higher rate, taxpayers who have held homes and businesses for many years pay far less than what the market value would determine. (AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli, File)
