Oregon comes in 10th for tax competitiveness

Oregon Ranks No 10 for Tax Competitiveness

National Federation of Independent Businesses

According to the Tax Foundation’s 2018 State Business Tax Climate Index, Oregon ranked 10th for its tax competitiveness.

The Foundation’s annual index is designed to help business leaders, government policymakers, and taxpayers determine how their state’s tax system compares to others.

Even though the state earned a top-10 ranking, apart from its low sales tax, it’s clear Oregon has a mixed overall record on taxes:

Corporate tax: 34th

Individual income tax: 32nd

Sales tax: 4th

Unemployment insurance tax: 31st

Property tax: 18th

The study’s authors also noted that the “absence of a major tax is a common factor among many of the top 10 states.” “Property taxes and unemployment insurance taxes are levied in every state, but there are several states that do without one or more of the major taxes: the corporate income tax, the individual income tax, or the sales tax. Wyoming, Nevada, and South Dakota have no corporate or individual income tax (though Nevada imposes gross receipts taxes); Alaska has no individual income or state-level sales tax; Florida has no individual income tax; and New Hampshire, Montana, and Oregon have no sales tax.”

Overall, Wyoming ranked No. 1, and New Jersey ranked worst at No. 50.
