Weekday Wrap: Oregonians are moving to Clark County, Washington, in droves
Income taxes may be to blame for Oregonian exodus to Washington. More than 5,400 people moved from Multnomah County across the Columbia River to Clark County between 2016 and 2020, according to U.S. Census Bureau data. Less than half as many people have moved in the opposite direction. A new report from the Portland Business Alliance attempts to analyze why people are leaving the Rose City, and one reason might be the Beaver State’s taxes. Oregon has one of the highest statewide income taxes in the nation, at 9.9%. Washington has no income tax. Andrew Hoan with the business alliance said taxes coupled with rising housing costs are making it easier for Portlanders to jump ship. (Sarah Wolf/The Columbian)
