Fact check: Kashkari's tax plans

Brown’s claim: Kashkari wants to give tax breaks to rich people.

The truth: Kashkari has said taxes in California are too high, but he has not proposed reducing income taxes for people in any income bracket. His jobs plan includes tax breaks for companies that move to California or open new manufacturing facilities here. He would give a 10-year corporate tax-exemption to out-of-state companies that bring at least 100 new jobs to California.
