Seriously, Oregon? You're taxing us on the federal stimulus payments? The ones that are supposed to be tax-free? And you even taxed us on the one from 2021 for the 2020 tax year?Good grief. Yes, legislators and the media seem to know about it, but there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of urgency to do something about it. (And by a "a whole lot of," I mean "any.") This is one of the few times I have picked up the phone and called my state legislator and complained about it. I encourage everyone else to do this. I don't think they ever answer their phones or call anyone back, it's just a voicemail repository. But if enough people leave voicemails, they might get so annoyed that maybe they will be more compelled to do their jobs.
I loved getting taxed on the stimulus payments.
