When it Comes to Taxes,
Things Really Do Look Different in Oregon

WILLAMETTE HERITAGE CENTER (SPINNING ROOM)
- 11:30 AM LUNCH
- 12 PM PROGRAM

Many tax experts have referred to Oregon’s system of taxation as unique, different, and even strange. With a combination of no sales tax, a kicker and property taxes with a constitutional limit, much of the public agrees.  Even Albert Einstein exclaimed that “paying taxes is too difficult for a mathematician. It should be asked of a philosopher.”

A former legislator and two think-tank executive directors will look at Oregon’s tax system, explain how it works and how it could be better in a three-member panel program at the January 25 Salem City Club luncheon meeting.

Program moderator/panel member Lane Shetterly, former legislator, will be joined by executive directors Alejandro Queral, Oregon Center for Public Policy and John Charles, Cascade Policy Institute. They will examine Oregon’s tax structure and possibly give us a preview of the debate we can expect to hear in the upcoming legislative session.
