We need to get all “Tax is a Tax” petitions in the mail to us by June 28th so there is enough time for us to receive them for the July turn-in deadline.
Many times petitions fail to qualify for the ballot because they came up a few thousand short. Help us secure a spot on the November ballot by sending your petition in. Below is more details on the petition.
“A statewide ballot measure that would change what types of revenue-related measures require a 60% majority vote in each chamber of the Legislature. The measure amends the constitution to require that all fee and tax increases, credits, exemptions and deductions receive a (60%) three-fifths majority vote to pass.”

Sign the Tax is Tax Amendment (Petition #31) to outlaw hidden back-door taxes by requiring that all taxes must get a 60% vote (3/5th majority) to pass.
Gov. Kate Brown already passed a $1.3 billion tax on small business 40 days ago and the tax violated the 60% (3/5th majority) rule. The tax passed with fewer votes.
The Tax is a Tax Amendment would require 60% vote on all taxes — including hidden, backdoor and deceitfully mislabeled taxes like the $1.3 billion tax.
This petition Amendment gives you permanently security from hidden taxes.
The petition campaign has only around 30 days left to gather signatures.
