Charlie Hales Lived in Washington State for Tax Purposes from 2004 to 2009

Portland mayoral candidate Charlie Hales has acknowledged to WW that from 2004 to 2009 he was a Washington state resident for tax purposes, and that he moved his residence to Portland only last year.

Hales confirmed his past tax status in response to questions from WW about public records that document his ties to Washington state even after he and his wife, Nancy, purchased a home in Southeast Portland in 2007.
