Not Tax-Friendly

The Beaver State has high income taxes: 9.9% is applied to taxable income over $125,000 ($250,000 for married couples filing jointly) — and the lowest bracket is already 5%. Property taxes are on the high side, too. Oregon’s absence of a sales tax (and the country’s lowest wireless tax) can’t make up for that.

Sales Tax


Income Tax Range

Low: 5% (on up to $3,450 of taxable income for single filers and up to $6,900 for married couples filing jointly)

High: 9.9% (on taxable income over $125,000 for single filers and over $250,000 for married couples filing jointly). Residents can deduct some of their federal income tax from state taxable income. The subtraction is limited to $6,650 ($3,325 if married filing separately). Local income taxes may be due as well; the average local levy is 0.36%, according to the Tax Foundation.

Motor Fuel Taxes

Gasoline: $0.3682.
Diesel: $0.3605.

Property Taxes

In Oregon, residents pay an average of $1,121 in taxes per $100,000 of assessed home value.
