Oregon state tax: Overview

Oregon state tax can't get any better when it comes to purchasing goods and services. That's because Oregon is one of the five states with no sales tax. However, income tax rates are higher in the Beaver State than they are in many other parts of the U.S. 

Additionally, heirs could face big tax bills in Oregon since there is a state estate tax, but estates worth less than $1 million aren't taxed.

[Data for this state tax guide was gathered from a number of sources including the Census Bureau, the state’s government website, the Sales Tax Handbook, and the Tax Foundation. Property taxes are cited as a rate percentage rather than the assessed value.]
