Not Tax-Friendly

Oregon's income tax bite is one of the biggest in the country. The lowest rate is 4.9% and the highest 9.9%. However, the state has a provision called the "kicker": If too much money is collected in a given year, taxpayers will receive a partial refund in the next year. Beaver State shoppers pay no sales tax at all.

Income Tax Range

Low: 4.75% (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)

A "kicker" tax credit may be available on Oregon tax returns for odd-numbered years. The credit is authorized if actual state revenues exceed forecasted revenues by 2% or more over the two-year budget cycle.

Counties and special districts can also impose local income taxes.
