Taxpayer Association of Oregon
This bill is currently having hearings and votes in the Oregon Senate Finance Committee.
The Taxpayers Association of Oregon supports SB 842 the Stimulus Protection Check Protection Act.
The State of Oregon should not be taxing relief money sent to Oregonians in need.
Because Oregon’s COVID restrictions were earlier, longer and more limiting than 40 other states, Oregonians saw a larger loss of jobs compared to the average state (per COVID death).
Oregon was one of the last two states to re-open from the winter lockdown according to the NY Times.
Simply put, Oregonians have sacrificed more, and their relief should not be taxed.
Vote Yes on SB 842
