How a new corporate tax plan could affect Oregonians

May 12, 2017View for printing

Effects of a proposed new corporate tax on Oregon's economy could be minimal but mostly positive when paired with other tweaks to the state's tax system, an analysis by the Legislative Revenue Office found.

Legislative Revenue Officer Paul Warner presented the finding Thursday to lawmakers on the Joint Tax Reform Committee.

But in every case, effects of the tax overhaul were slight - increases or decreases of just fractions of a percent.
