Support Proposition 3: Expanding the Freeport Tax Exemption
Prop 3 gives local taxing jurisdictions the option to extend the Freeport property tax exemption on aircraft parts for up to two years. Texas is one of only 11 states in the country that has any type of inventory tax, forcing manufacturers to move their inventories – and sometimes their entire operations – out of Texas. The current Freeport law is particularly challenging to Texas's 240 aerospace and aircraft manufacturers, who provide over 200,000 jobs and contribute nearly $49 billion annually to the state's economy. Passing Proposition 3 will help Texas aerospace and aircraft manufacturers to maintain their competitive standing, thus keeping jobs and tax revenue here at home.
