Capitol update: Hemp, Wolf, Taxes, Carbon

February 21, 2018 --

By Oregon Small Business Association,

Oregon’s Legislature continues to grind away during its short “off-year” Session, and the State’s agricultural interests received some attention in mid-February. The House Agriculture Committee passed three bills of interest to Oregon farmers, ranchers and foresters, sending them along to the Joint Ways and Means Committee which must also approve since they have a budget impact.

SB 1528Small business tax.  SB 1528 is a tax only on Oregon Small businesses which will impact many small Oregon family farmers. Last year Congress passed the heralded Tax Reform package which provided small businesses a 20% reduction in taxable income. SB 1528 simply steals away the benefit from Oregon taxes. Sb 1528 only eliminates the tax deduction for small businesses in the 2017 Tax Reform and does not eliminate or touch the tax reductions offered to large corporations.
