- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Need to set the record straight here, even though it's off-topic of our 3rd District candidates...
Washingtonians working in Oregon pay Oregon state income tax on every dollar earned in Oregon at the same rate Oregonians pay. If you list the counties by the total revenue paid in the form of Oregon income tax, Clark County, WA is in the top 5. And what do non-resident taxpayers receive? Not much. We use the roads, and I guess if we were laid off, we would collect unemployment insurance from Oregon.
I live about 15 miles from my job. That's about the same as my co-workers living in Tualatin, Hillsboro, and Gresham. So what's the big deal?
