Property Taxes

City Club of Portland members approved, with an 94% majority, Reconstructing Oregon’s Frankentax: Improving the Equity, Financial Sustainability, and Efficiency of Property Taxes. The study committee finds that the 1990’s ballot measures, and changing real estate valuations, have led to property assessments that are inequitable, unsustainable, and inefficient.  City Club members are building a statewide coalition to engage the public and decision makers on how to reduce the inequity and return local control.
