Oregon Death Tax repeal petition hangs in the balance

Oregon Death Tax repeal petition hangs in balance — you could make the difference
By Taxpayer Association of Oregon

All eyes are on the Death Tax Repeal petition (petition #15) because the drive is close and the deadline is also close as it falls on July 6th which is Friday of next week. This is Oregon’s chance to join most other states in rolling back our estate tax. Eliminating this terrible death tax could lead to creation of up to 44,500 jobs to Oregon over the next 5 years and make Oregon a decent place to rest in peace. The initiative forbids any new tax on any property transfer among living family members. It phases out the capital gains tax on property sales within a family on the same schedule as the phase out of the death tax. You can download a petition here.
