Is there a “sales tax” in the future for counties bleeding to death without timber revenues?

Although there are a number of bills before the Congress to prevent rural counties nationwide from going bankrupt for lack of timber harvest revenues (and there are a number of them in Oregon), there are also a number of LOCAL options that might be pursued in a “self-help” vein. It’s called raising local taxes. Curry County charges less than 25% of the state average for property taxes. There is also the specter of a sales tax, but that would be about as popular as a drunk at a poetry reading. These and other observations are included in this rather sweeping article in the Oregonian. Click here.
