A California End State Taxes at Age 55 Amendment (09-0045) did not qualify for the November 2, 2010 ballot in California as an initiated constitutional amendment.

On October 1, 2009, Lee W. Olson filed a request with the Office of the California Attorney General for an official ballot title on an act that he was calling the "Freedom From Slavery Act."

The attorney general's office had provided that title, so the measure was cleared for circulation with a circulation deadline of April 23, 2010.

If this measure had succeeded, it would have added a new Section 32 to Article I of the California Constitution, which would have read:

This text is quoted verbatim from the original source. Any inconsistencies are attributed to the original source.

Every resident of the State of California shall be exempt from all forms of State of California income and property taxes beginning the year following the 55th anniversary of the birth of the resident and continuing every year of residency thereafter until, and including the day of, the resident's death nor shall any form of estate tax be levied on the resident's estate.
