Nationwide tax study

According to a 2009 nationwide tax study conducted by ITEP, taxes amount to approximately 8.7% of the "poorest Oregonians'" (income below $18,000) total income. Approximately 20% of state residents make below $18,000. On the other hand the taxes total 6.2% of the "richest Oregonians'" (income above $417,000) total income. Only 1% of Oregonians have a yearly income of more than $417,000. According to the Oregon Center for Public Policy, one of the reasons that taxes total a greater percent for lower income residents is that wealthier people can usually claim more deductions and credits.[2][3]
