Senate Finance & Revenue - 01.31.2023
The committee heard testimony on a proposal allowing individuals to report their race and ethnicity on state tax forms. A similar proposal died in 2022.
On Tuesday, the Senate Finance & Revenue Committee held a hearing on a proposal to allow personal income taxpayers to report their race and ethnicity on their tax forms voluntarily. Advocates for the measure, led primarily by the Oregon Center for Public Policy, say the race and ethnicity information of taxpayers would help the state better understand the impacts of its tax policies on specific communities.
