The State of California Constitution identifies that property this way: “The State of California is an inseparable part of the United States of America, and the United States Constitution is the supreme law of the land.”Â This quote is found in Article 3 Section 1 of the State of California of Â 1879.
Article 4 of Â the Northwest Ordinance of July 13, 1787 made the District, the Northwest Territory, forever “a part of Â this Confederacy of Â the United States of America, subject to the Articles of Confederation, and to such alterations therein as shall be constitutionally made.”
The State of California to the extent it is subject to the Constitution of the United States is the territory belonging to the United States of America.
This means the only property that is subject to property taxation is personal property that does not belong to the United States of America.Â To be taxable, property must be on territory owned by the United States of America.
A condition to admission of Â a State into “this Union” is the promise not to tax what is owned by the United States of America.Â This is Â just a ploy to suggest the power of State government to tax property.Â Â There is no such power.Â The English monarchy had it, but when it left so did that power.
Government lawyers claim the power to tax is inherent in government, but we have proven the Constitution of the United States has not been adopted and the United States is just what is owned by the United States of America.Â Taxation is more easily limited to federal territory by putting attorneys where they belong on federal territory.
