Estate Tax Measure

Pete Springer/OPB

This November, Oregonians will vote on a proposal that phases out existing inheritance taxes on large estates, and all taxes on intra-family property transfers. 

Ballot Measure 84 (pdf) is backed by Kevin Mannix who is the chief petitioner and vocal supporter. The main coalition opposed to the ballot measure is Defend Oregon, a group made up of individuals and organizations who want to keep the estate tax alive in Oregon.

How do you plan to vote on Measure 84? What questions do you have about what the measure would do? How will the measure affect you?
