Kari over at Blue Oregon has put up an excellent post about GOP gube candidate Ron Saxton and his anticipated move back to the center after the Oregon GOP primary. Kari mentions that the "issues" page on Saxton's current website is being "updated" but Kari has the cached link to Saxton's "issues" page from the GOP primary. Those of us who placed bets on this are waiting to collect our money... although, betting on Saxton's jump to the center from the right didn't have much risk to it, so most of us will only be collecting about 10 cents in winnings, so don't get too excited.
One thing I'm trying to figure out, and perhaps someone can help me on this, on Saxton's cached "issues" page is something he calls a "hassle tax" on bidness:
...I will change Oregon 's harsh regulatory climate and reduce the "hassle tax" associated with doing business here.
Does anyone know what the "hassle tax" is? Is it the $10 corporate minimum tax (the lowest in the nation) that all incorporated bidnesses doing bidness in the state are required to pay? I'm the owner of a small S-Corp in the state of Oregon and I've gone through my Oregon corporate tax forms and am trying to figure out what the "hassle tax" is. Is there an extra schedule on the S-20 form that I'm missing?
