Gordon Hillesland's comments:
Frank Morse was asked how many new Department of Revenue employees would be needed if a sales tax was initiated. Between 700 and 1,000 new Oregon Department of Revenue Employees would be needed to enforce a sales tax. I base that on the fact that about 1.000 employees are now employed by Oregon Department of Revenue to enforce other revenue producing laws. If the ratio of Department of Revenue employees to state residents were to be made the same in 2009 as it was in 1990, 400 additional employees would need to be hired. In 1990, there were about 2.5 million people in Oregon. In 2009, there are about 3.5 million people in Oregon. About 1,000 employees were employed by Oregon Department of Revenue in 1990 and 2009.
