Ballot Measure 84 to Repeal Oregon's Estate Tax Defeated

By November 8, 2012

Follow me on:

On Tuesday voters in Oregon were given the opportunity to vote in favor of completely phasing out Oregon's estate tax by 2016. Despite all of the negative connotations associated with a tax collected due to death, Measure 84 was defeated by a margin of 54% in favor of keeping the estate tax vs. 46% in favor of getting rid of it. On another note, Oregon's Measure 80, which would have allowed personal marijuana and hemp cultivation and use without a license, was defeated by the same margin of 54% against the measure vs. 46% for the measure. A similar measure did pass in both Colorado and Washington, and in Massachusetts voters approved legalization of medical marijuana.
