Here is how they will steal your Kicker
By Taxpayer Association of Oregon
The Legislature has already had hearings on Senate Joint Resolution 14 (SJR 14) which would take part of your Kicker Tax Refund. SJR 14 takes a portion of your Kicker Refund into a government stockpile fund and leaves a remaining portion for the taxpayer. This is how they plan to gut the kicker, one piece at a time, just like they did when they removed small businesses from the kicker refund. Because it is in the Constitution, it would require the politicians sending it to the ballot to get a vote of the people. The politicians dread stealing it outright so they will weaken and gut it slowly. The Taxpayer Association of Oregon testified against this SJR 14 when it had a hearing back in February early on in session.
As announced this week, Oregon State Government has over-collected $473 million in tax revenue. This is well above forecast and it help put the people’s constitutional Kicker law into effect.
Here is how you can help.
