Take a look at how over-taxed Portlanders are when it comes to transportation:
• Portland has a 10-cent gas tax — when most cities have none.
• Multnomah County has a $112 car tax ($56 year) — when most counties have none.
• Portland has a very high 17% car rental tax.
• Politicians are planning to place tolls throughout Portland.
Despite all these taxes the Portland Transportation Department has a $32 million deficit in its budget. To fill the gap the City is considering cutting road projects by $32 million.
This is a sign of a City that is tax and spending out-of-control. Other Oregon taxpayers need to be on alert because these type of high transportation taxes are coming to a city near you.
