The Oregon Property Value Reset Amendment, known in the legislature as Senate Joint Resolution 11, did not make the November 2014 statewide ballot in Oregon as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have reset a property’s taxable value whenever it was sold. According to reports, this would have made the property value assessed for tax purposes more compatible with actual market values. SJR 11 died in the Senate. It was in committee when the legislative session adjourned.[1][2]
