Send E-Letters Asking Governor Brown to Delay Oregon CAT Tax Implementation

"Tax That Keeps On Taking"… Even when a business has a loss due to falling economy

Governor Kate Brown reiterated that she would not delay the implementation of the new 2020 Corporate Activity Tax (CAT tax on 0.57% of business gross revenues over $1 million), despite repeated requests from Oregon businesses strapped with depleted cashflow due to the Covid 19 state-ordered economic shutdowns nationwide. AOL was in one of many business coalitions that urged suspension of the CAT tax for at least six months.

Gov. Brown irrationally said that making business pay the extra CAT tax is "one of the best ways to protect small business and middle-class taxpayers." Gov. Brown did announce that the state would not penalize businesses unable to make first quarter CAT payments, due April 30th. This gesture offers little solace to businesses knowing that their CAT tax debt accumulates and will come due sooner than later.

Send an E-Letter. Tell Gov. Brown that CAT delay would provide critical relief to struggling Oregon employers, at this Brighter Oregon weblink: https://brighteroregon.ivolunteers.com/ContactOfficials/protect-small-business
