Kitzhaber Calls For Special Session on The CRC For October 15th! Any Takers?

As if $2 Billion Dollars in new revenue form this last session was not enough. The 2013 special session raised $244 million in proposed new taxes! Gov. John Kitzhaber got his way, and now some big changes could be coming to Oregonians’ pocketbooks. Taxpayers currently may claim a $183 exemption credit for themselves and each dependent. Under the proposal, the credit would be eliminated for individuals earning more than $100,000 or couples earning more than $200,000. It’s a small change, but eliminating credits for dependents means it would impact large families most, said Rep. Vicki Berger R-Salem. "If we don’t do something about it it’s just going to increase exponentially," said Sen. Ginny Burdick, D-Portland. "As with any deal, it’s a sausage-making process," said Rep. Jules Bailey, D-Portland. Life is Like A Box of Chocolates; You Never Know What You Are Going To Get. Except with a Special Session for The CRC we know exactly what we will get! "A go-it-alone plan isn’t in Oregon’s best interest." OMG CRC WTF ??
