Description

An analysis of thousands of property tax records found that most Portland-area homeowners pay more than their fair share of the cost of local government and schools, thanks to Oregon's skewed tax system. A small share of property owners, mainly people who bought into rapidly gentrifying neighborhoods, enjoy huge tax breaks under the system. The Oregonian/OregonLive analysis is the first to ever quantify winners and losers and the first to identify, house by house, who would benefit from tax reform. The answer? Most people.
