SALEM, Oregon: The signature deadline is less than a month away, but Oregon Tax Hike Referendum supporters said that they are well on their way to meeting the 55,000 signature requirement. If enough signatures are collected a special election will be held on January 26, 2010.[1] Most recently the Oregon Farm Bureau Federation joined Oregonians Against Job-Killing Taxes. According to agricultural businesses the tax hikes, if approved by voters in January, is essentially double taxation. According to business owners after paying a corporate tax earnings would be taxed again as personal income.[2] Pat McCormick, a spokesman for the group Oregonians Against Job-Killing Taxes, said the group has raised about $750,000 from business organizations, timber companies to help pay for the signature-gathering effort.[1]
