THE ECONOMIC IMPACT OF THE OREGON PEOPLE’S REBATE

Spoiler alert: It will probably make a big difference to you and your family

The Oregon People’s Rebate will rebate about $750 to every person in Oregon, every year, and that’ll make a huge difference to most of us.

The REBATE for the median Oregon household (3 people, earning $56,116) will be about $2,250, the equivalent of receiving a 4.0% salary increase.

By the way, the REBATE is not taxable in Oregon and does not affect anyone’s eligibility to income-based benefits.

Wow!

ECONOMIC IMPACT TO OUR BUSINESSES

Spoiler alert: It’s a huge benefit for all, particularly “Mom & Pop” operations

Your big, medium, or “Mom & Pop” businesses will almost certainly benefit from the economic stimulus in your community and will not be subject to the higher minimum tax.

First of all, yes. Mom, pop, and the kiddos also get the REBATE themselves. Cha-ching!

Secondly, all of your customers will have $750 more disposable income that may be spent in your business. Cha-ching! Cha-ching!

It’s important to keep in mind that your business will not be subject to the new minimum tax unless your sales are over $68,493 every single day of the year and you pay less than 3% in taxes.

In fact, the vast majority of Oregon businesses will not have to pay a dollar more.

The Oregon People’s Rebate (2022) is funded by increasing the minimum tax of only huge corporations. By “huge ” we mean any corporation with more than $25 million in annual sales (that comes out to about $68,493 every single day of the year). The minimum is increased from currently less than 1/8 of 1% to 3%. Why? Because we believe that huge corporations should start paying their fair share in taxes, like the rest of us.

The Oregon People’s Rebate also eliminates the S-Corp “loophole” for huge corporations, so now the huge S-Corps will pay the same as the huge C-Corps. Why? Because we believe that all of the huge corporations should be treated equally.


ECONOMIC IMPACT IN OUR COMMUNITIES

Spoiler Alert: The Oregon People’s Rebate is a huge economic stimulus to our local economies

Economists talk about things like “economic impact,” “economic multiplier effect,” and blah-blah-blah. Most of us will just think it’s obvious to keep about $3 billion of our own money in our own state and our hands because we know how best what to do with our money.
