Oregon tax measure could increase consumer prices

OREGON STATE POLITICSSalem, Ore. — The corporate tax measure Oregon voters will decide on this November would increase prices statewide.

That’s according to the Tax Foundation, a Washington D.C. think tank.

The proposed tax, also known as IP28, would assess a 2.5% gross receipts tax on companies with annual sales north of $25 million.

The foundation says the gross-receipts tax would be one of the highest in the country and would not replace the corporate income tax.

Consumers would also pay more for items made by affected companies.
