Recently, there have been several bills proposed that increase taxes in Oregon. To say I'm concerned, would be an understatement. Here are just some of the bills being looked at...
HB 2120 — Relating to personal income tax, limiting the amount of itemized deductions available.
HB 2123, HB 2159, HB 2169, HB 2270, HB 3266 — Expands the definition of tobacco products and increases tobacco tax.
HB 2020 — Relating to clean energy, with an estimated increase of 15 cents per gallon gas tax increase and 11% natural gas tax increase.
SJR 3 — Removes kicker process...currently at $686 million.
HJR 3, HJR 4, HB 2167 — Increases property taxes by removing Measure 5 property tax cap and potentially increasing property taxes by 40%.
HB2636 — Increases corporate minimum tax.
Please take a look at these revenue and student success documents that show more of the legislation being proposed regarding tax increases. As always, I appreciate any feedback.
