A few days ago, a group of Legislators joined me in filing an initiative petition that we hope to get on the ballot in November of 2024. It would stop Oregon seniors from being taxed on their property.
"However, Senator Kim Thatcher said for her, the measure boils town to fairness. 'At what point has a senior, who is of Medicare age, not paid their fair share?' Thatcher asked. 'We've talked for years about the need for a homestead exemption for seniors because they are getting gouged in retirement with high income taxes, gas taxes and surcharges, and now they're stuck paying the cost of the CAT tax at a time when they have higher medical bills and prescription drug costs. Every year, as their retirement income dwindles, their property taxes keep climbing. It's simply unfair,' said Thatcher."
Would you help me financially? You can use your Political Action Tax Credit. You might be thinking, in the midst of these tough times, that you don't have any extra money to help in my campaign. Fortunately, Oregon has a one-of-a-kind tool to help you help my campaign. It's called the OREGON POLITICAL ACTION TAX CREDIT.< Almost every Oregon State income taxpayer (some are excluded if they make too much money - check here for details) can take $50 per individual and send those dollars to a political action committee (PAC) and get every dollar back as a credit. Would you send my PAC $50 or $100 today to help me connect and fight to win my election? Remember that your contribution, up to $50 per filing individual or $100 per couple filing jointly could qualify for Oregon Political Action Tax Credit and cost you NOTHING!
