Introduction: This report measures the likely effects of recent, proposed tax rate increases on households and corporations in Oregon. It examines the effect of these policies on job growth in the state, and the migration of taxpayers and their income. The tax policies examined are those passed by the Oregon legislature in 2009. The Legislature passed two bills affecting, respectively, personal and corporate tax policy. These bills are subject to a referendum in January 2010 and thus are known by their ballot measure numbers: Measure 66 and Measure 67.
