on Tax Measures
In print and electronic discussions of Measure 67, I often see "business can just pass through the extra tax to customers". This is a dangerously wrong assumption. My company services utilities in 11 Western states, providing 50+ family wage jobs in Oregon. However, none of my major competitors are based in Oregon. When I bid a project, I cannot include these extra Oregon taxes, as I must remain competitive with non-Oregon businesses.
I support thoughtfully revising the Oregon business tax structure - Unfortunately Measure 67 is not the correct revision.
