End of Year Tax Planning: Make a free contribution to Defend Oregon

City of SalemImage via Wikipedia

If you haven't already made a $50 political contribution this year ($100 for joint filers), here's an opportunity that merits your support -- and costs you nothing, thanks to the Oregon tax credit.

If you live in or near Salem, you will pay far more than this in lost jobs and services in our community if the measures fail. This election shouldn't even be close, but the "No" campaign -- "Oregonians Willing to Tell Any Kind of Lie About Jobs to Defeat Taxes" -- will be very well-funded by precisely those few Oregonians who will see any kind of tax increase and who are happy to see services for the poor and middle class slashed rather than pay a small tax increase because it just means more power for them.
