Many businesses and organizations are engaged in the efforts to oppose Initiative Petition 28 – the proposed $6 Billion tax increase that will be on the November ballot. IP28 would create huge new taxes on many products sold in Oregon, as well as on services provided by Oregon employers, even if those services are sold around the world.
Recently, the nonpartisan Oregon Legislative Revenue Office (LRO) released a report to the House and Senate Revenue Committees highlighting the devastating effects that Initiative Petition 28 (IP28) would have on the Oregon economy. The report is packed with information illustrating how damaging and costly this proposal would be for small and medium-sized businesses, as well as Oregon consumers.
