In the Portland area, there is the possibility of a great deal of money coming back to pockets of taxpayers very soon. In fact, economists say taxpayers stand to gain just shy of $700 million, which will come in a form known as “kicker” payments. The economists say much of this will come as tax credits, but could spell out what looks like a less bleak financial gain for Oregon residents.
Just take a look at the article we found recently on the OPB website:
“State economists now anticipate almost $78 million more from personal income taxes than in June, and $11 million more in corporate income taxes. And because of the deaths of a number of extremely wealthy individuals, the state also expects to generate more than $50 million more in estate taxes. In all, economists say the state may take in more than $1 billion more than they estimated at the close of last year’s legislative session.”
