What’s more important—tax breaks for big corporations, or funding our classrooms?
Tomorrow, the Oregon House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on House Bill 2456, which would generate $275 million for schools and critical services by closing tax loopholes for big corporations and the upper-income taxpayers.
Will you send a quick email now to your Representative, urging him or her to vote YES on House Bill 2456?
HB 2456 will help fund schools by capping deductions for households that make more than $250,000 a year and by closing the corporate minimum tax loophole for corporations with more than $100 million in sales.
If HB 2456 doesn’t pass, it will mean another two years of deep cuts to our K-12 schools and critical services for seniors. That will mean even more overcrowded classrooms, shorter school years, and cuts to basic senior care.
The tax break changes in HB 2456 only impact the wealthiest 2% of corporations and upper-income households. The bill is a step in the right direction toward making sure that we’re funding our schools and critical services, like health care for seniors.
Right now, Oregon is tied for the lowest business taxes in the country. We’re projected to give away more than $36 billion in tax breaks over the next two years. It’s no wonder we have the third largest K-12 class sizes in the country, and one of the shortest school years.
It’s time to do something about it. Email your Representative now and say, “Vote YES on HB 2456.”
