The Oregon County Regulation of Taxes and Abolition of Poll Tax Amendment, also known as Measure 14, was on the November 8, 1910 ballot in Oregon as an initiated constitutional amendment, where it was approved. The measure granted counties the ability to regulate taxation, regardless of constitutional restrictions or state statutes, and abolished the poll or head tax.[1]

The measure created Section 1a of Article IX of the Oregon Constitution.[2]

Aftermath

Part of Measure 14 was repealed by Measure 5 of 1912. Measure 5 maintained the abolition of the poll tax, but repealed the ability of counties to regulate taxation regardless of constitutional restrictions and state statutes.
