Campaign to refer tax increases now online

The campaign to refer the Oregon personal income tax and corporate tax increase bills to the ballot has started.

Go to to learn how you can sign a petition or collect signatures from your friends, neighbors and associates.

Cascade Policy Institute is researching the economic damage that these two tax increases will cause. Initial economic analysis finds that:

The personal income tax increase will cost 36,000 jobs.

The corporate income tax increase will cost 43,000 jobs.

If you would like to help Cascade make the case against these tax increases to Oregonians, contact Steve Buckstein at (503) 242-0900 or [email protected].

    Thanks, Steve. I wish we could also refer the state gasoline and healthcare premium taxes. As regards gasoline tax, ODOT wastes monies on over-priced solar power projects which don’t generate power when the power is needed for street lighting. And the tax on individual private healthcare plans should be considered in violation of the same right to privacy as implied by Roe v. Wade. It’s like the government taxing women on their right to choose.
