Backers of a controversial corporate tax proposal in Oregon recently gathered enough signatures to qualify the initiative petition (IP) for the November ballot. If approved by voters, IP 28 would impose a gross receipts tax on Oregon entities with more than $25 million in Oregon sales beginning in 2017. Currently, Oregon’s minimum tax is based on Oregon-sourced sales and maxes out at $100,000 annually for corporations with total Oregon sales of $100 million and above. Under IP 28, corporations with over $25 million in Oregon sales would pay the minimum tax ($30,001) plus 2.5 percent on all additional sales above $25 million. According to the state Legislative Revenue Office, IP 28 would generate $548 million of new revenue in the 2015-2017 fiscal biennium and $6.1 billion in the 2017-2019 biennium. The revenue raised would be used for education, healthcare, and senior services. Please stay tuned to TWIST for updates on IP 28.
