Want more affordable housing? Tax structures less.
Want more people to own their own homes or small farm sites? Tax land more, to make purchase prices more affordable.
Want to discourage speculation? Tax land more, so speculators won’t buy land just for a good rate of return in a state with rapidly rising land prices.
But since the “devil is in the details,” we need a statewide study to determine optimal rates.

Our 2021 Oregon Legislative Agenda

Conduct a property tax study statewide, along the lines of what Portland State University did locally, with our guidance, in 2019. You can help support this effort by submitting testimony once a hearing is scheduled. Thank you for your help!
