Yep, send those angry replies to the messenger.
Kiplinger writes for investors, a class who by definition can buy shares of a company — or the whole company — and not really worry if they lose it all; there is more where that came from.
Kiplinger rates Oregon as “Not Tax-Friendly.”
It goes on to say: “The Beaver State’s top rate of 9.9% is applied to taxable income over $125,000 ($250,000 for married couples filing jointly). One bright spot in Oregon’s tax picture is its absence of a sales tax.”
Kiplinger also reports the Tax Foundation’s property tax factoid: Property tax on Oregon’s median home value of $257,400 is $2,241.
The good news, of course, is that Oregon didn’t make the “Least Tax Friendly” states, which include California and Hawaii, but are otherwise in the Midwest and Northeast.
