Property taxes are killing us. We've been in our home for 30 years, and taxes are now a whopping $7800. I get so tired of people bemoaning passage of Measure 5. Who can afford this? It discriminates against older Oregonians--because we could never afford this home now--and it's going to force us to move. Our home is not income producing, and it should not be used as a county piggy bank. Property taxes infuriate me. They bear no relationship to the homeowner's ability to pay.
We need a sales tax!
