Tax Measures

OPB | Jan. 22, 2010 9 a.m. | Updated: Sept. 10, 2013 9:13 p.m.

By January 26th you’ll be voting on two tax measures. The Oregonian has a handy calculator to see how each proposed tax could affect you.

Measure 66 would raise income taxes for families that earn more than $250,000. It would raise nearly $500 million to balance the current state budget.

Measure 67 would raise the minimum tax corporations pay from $10 to $150. It also changes the way some corporations are taxed. It would raise more than $250 million to balance the current state budget.

The race is very close according to a poll (pdf) by OPB, Fox 12 and the Portland Tribune.

As you read and watch the ads from both campaigns, what questions are you left with? How will you vote on these measures? Why? What are the deciding factors for you? If you’re still undecided, what would sway you in one direction or another? What do you want to know before you vote?

Please note: this program will be recorded in front of a live audience in OPB’s TV studio on Thursday January 21st. All are welcome, but seating is limited. Doors open at 6 pm. Show begins at 7 pm. Please join us! Or help get the conversation started online now.
