The Oregon People’s Rebate is a proposed initiative petition for the November 2022 election (IP 2022-006) that will REBATE $750 to every Oregonian every year. This REBATE will go directly to anyone living in Oregon for more than 200 days of the year, regardless of age, income, or status.
The revenue to fund the REBATE is generated by increasing the minimum tax paid by huge corporations doing business in Oregon to 3%. Currently, the minimum tax for these huge corporations is less than 1%!
