RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Since arriving in Oregon from the NYC/NJ area, I have to admit Oregon is a mixed bag tax wise: way cheaper to live here tax wise than in NY and NJ. As a small business (one person LLC) I am not getting hit with all the crazy taxes I did back there (NY state tax, NJ State Tax, NYC tax, Fed Tax, and fees fees fees.) So quite frankly I see a lot of the complaining about taxes here as small minded whining.
But that being said I also thinking the Oregon state legislature is probably the most idiotic set-up I've seen. What state in their right mind only makes a budget every two years? And there definitely is lack of creative thinking in terms of bringing in new revenue to the state. Have the leaders here ever heard of economic incentives for businesses?
