Ore. leads nation in income taxes. Now view 2010 change

December 15, 2009

Oregon already is a leader in state income taxes, but now consider how much higher it will be if the 2001 Bush Tax Cuts will expire.
By Oregon Tax News,

Americans for Tax Reform did a calculation of what each state’s top income tax rate would be if the Bush 2001 tax cuts expire.  The results are ranked from best to worst with nine states being tied for the first spot as these states have no income tax.  Oregon was noted for being the highest income tax state (including the District of Columbia).  The method does not compare other taxes such as sales taxes where Oregon has none and Washington is among the highest. The chart is useful for those businesses and individuals consider moving into or out of a state.  More from the chart here

Can anyone say, why so high?

Anthony December 15, 2009

It is critical that voters reject measures 66&67 – if passed those tax increases will ruin what economy this state has left. The state needs to learn to live within its means and draw a line when it comes to spending and the amount of control and influence it allows the PERS to have over the people of Oregon.

Marvin McConoughey December 15, 2009

I understand that our limited property taxes and almost no sales tax requires a relatively higher income tax. Still, state revenues averaged out over time are sufficient to operate a well-managed state government. Passing permanently higher taxes and tax rates seems a poor choice when Oregon already is short on employment opportunities.

When socialists elected to office RE-distribute one persons wealth and give to another, this is a soft-tyranny.

Are we to believe that HIGH unemployment rates are NOT related to HIGH taxes??? Please!!

Well, now we know where the Republicans get their ideas from.
They have one solution for every problem: cut taxes.
Somehow that’s the way to keep teachers in the classroom, protect foster kids, and keep prisoners in jail.

Cutting taxes has proven track reocrd. Why not try it?

Dona December 18, 2009

Lots of interesting comments, but do have to agree, why not look at what’s worked in the past and try it again. It does make you wonder why Oregon’s taxes are so high.

Davidtoo December 21, 2009

Why should the govt get to spend more than they take in?
WE don’t get to do that. They should not be allowed to do it either.
When our income gets cut, due to a poor economy, THEY should cut their spending as well. The notion that they actually RAISE taxes during a period like this is insulting and only makes matters worse for THE PEOPLE.
