I'll be moving to Portland in June and I just realized that I won't have to pay any taxes whatsoever. I've set up a job that pays under the table and with no sales tax, property tax, utilities tax or gas tax (I ride my bike), I'm going to be living high on the hog, yo. I mean, this shit is a straight up paradise! The best part of it all is that I'll still get to vote for all the measures, bonds, levees, whatever, that puts the burden of payment strictly on the property owners. I vote: you pay. I couldn't ask for a better system. Portland: here i come!
