Babener to Serve on City Club of Portland’s Committee on Oregon’s Property Tax System
Lane Powell Attorney Jeremy Babener was recently selected to serve on the City Club of Portland’s committee on Oregon’s Property Tax System. Local governments statewide are feeling the strain as property tax revenues fail to keep up with the cost of providing essential services, while property owners complain about rising property tax bills despite falling property values. The committee will research the evolution of the Oregon property tax system. The objectives are: 1) understanding and explaining the current implementation of the property tax system, 2) evaluating the pros and cons, and 3) identifying any improvements that could be made.
