Poll Finds Oregonians Open to Property Tax Changes

Lawmakers in Salem are considering many changes in Oregon's property tax system, hoping to address issues of fairness, compression and, in some cases, they're trying to bust the limits created by ballot measures over the past 23 years.

Prior to the session, the  League of Oregon Cities, which wants to see a variety of changes, commissioned polling (PDF) on property taxes, which is now circulating in the Capitol.

The poll finds Oregonians are open to changing the property tax system, even if they aren't always sure how it works.

There's another interesting finding, highlighted below: Oregonian's views about property taxes are pretty consistent regardless of the respondents' political views or geography.
