on Tax Measures
It doesn't appear anyone understands the additional tax on "GROSS REVENUES" Conider your local coffee shop or restaurant. If they have been in business for 3 or more years, it is very likely they have a gross revenue in excess of $500,000. This means before they ever calculate profits, they need to give up $7500 (1.5%). From my experience, this is being paid to a college student trying to suppliment their cost of living. Let's not forget that most of Oregon employeers are made of up small businesses. Leave them alone and listen to President Obama, "Now isn't the time to tax".
