POLICY NUMBER 1: TOTAL REVENUE CAP
(Adopted March 19, 1991 and Revised November 19, 1991)
Fairfax County's revenue should be limited to (1) a rate of growth that is no higher in any year than the rate of growth of total personal income in the County in the preceding year, and (2) a share of total personal income no higher than in fiscal year 1987. These limits should apply to total County revenue exclusive only of proceeds from bond sales and of transfers from the state and federal governments.
POLICY NUMBER 2: INDEBTEDNESS CAP
(Adopted March 19, 1991)
Bonded indebtedness of Fairfax County should not exceed 3% of the County's total personal income.
POLICY NUMBER 3: REAL ESTATE REVENUE CAP
(Adopted April 16, 1991)
The Fairfax County Taxpayers Alliance endorses a Fairfax County revenue program wherein, the real estate tax is subject to 'full equalization' for the next four years; that is, whenever assessments increase, the tax rate should be lowered to fully offset the assessment increase so there is no increase in the average tax bill. This policy permits revenue increases resulting from new growth (i.e. construction, rezoning, and sub-division) in the real estate tax base.
POLICY NUMBER 4: INDIVIDUAL ASSESSMENT CAP
(Adopted May 21, 1991)
The Fairfax County Taxpayer Alliance supports a change to the Commonwealth of Virginia Constitution which would limit the increase in assessment for an owner occupied residential property to two (2) percent during any year of ownership. This policy would permit assessment increases to current market value whenever a residential property changes ownership.
POLICY NUMBER 5: PRIVATIZATION
(Adopted August 20, 1991)
Fairfax County will not use tax, license, or bond revenues to compete against the private sector.
POLICY: USER FEES
