SB 1528 hits Small Business with $240 million tax!










Oregon Small Business Association urges a No vote on SB 1528-B

SB 1528 raises a quarter billion in new taxes on Oregon Small Business

Small business is already paying higher taxes
– 2017 Health Care Tax
– 2017 Gas tax
– 2017 Vehicle fee increases
– 2017 Payroll tax (transportation)
– 2017 Over 500 fee increases, including occupation licensing
– 2016 Hotel tax
– Local tax increases
