In this episode of GeTtin’ SALTy, host Nikki Dobay is joined by Jeff Newgard, principal at Peak Policy, to discuss the Oregon legislative session as well as a bill that is being considered that would require alignment to the state tax base for any local income tax. The bill is meant to address the significant increase in tax compliance and administration complexities that have been unfolding over the past several years in the Portland area as the number of local taxes continue to increase. Jeff provides some historical background and context regarding Portland area local taxes and then the two get into the details on just how difficult things have become since 2020. Jeff and Nikki end their conversation on a high-note, discussing all the things they love about Oregon summers.
