Court fines forest activist groups for illegally collecting tax revenues
On Oct. 30, the Oregon Legislature passed House Bill 1520, which imposes a civil fine of up to $50,000 for any law enforcement officer violating the Oregon Taxpayers Protection Act.
“The problem is, they have the capacity 바카라사이트to do it, so it’s about who’s going to enforce the law, which is a very difficult thing to do, even if you don’t see the criminal act,” Sen. Steve Hansen, R-Salem, said.
As you might suspect, it’s a big business. The state Department of Revenue reports that the department, which oversees the Oregon Revenue Department’s field offices, issued $26.8 million in citations last year alone.
“Taxpayers’ rights are being trampled,” said Rep. Joe Moore, D-Lincoln. “My message to the people of Oregon is if you are going to break or obstruct another person’s tax obligation, you better be prepared to pay that price. So they are going to be fined and you can see what that cost us because you don’t get to keep w우리카지노hatever you got.”
The Legislature approved the bill in part because it has been introduced this year and the committee had heard about it from Rep. Doug Doss, D-Portland. But it has to pass through the full Oregon House and Senate before becoming law.
Oregon Taxpayers Protection Act – a summary, the bill’s details
The Oregon Taxpayers Protection Act, also known as the State Taxpayer Protection Act of 2015, addresses the question of whether and how governments should collect and spend money citizens collect without infringing on the rights of those individuals to collect it.
It authorizes the Oregon Revenue Division to collect and spend money that is the natural result of citizens’ tax payments.
The bill also creates a presumption that tax-funded services are the result of c바카라사이트itizens’ tax-related activities.
When citizens’ rights are violated, they get an automatic penalty that amounts to the “full amount of any civil, criminal, administrative or tortious debt, fine, penalty, civil suit, suit by or through any court, suit, suit by means of an election or otherwise against the person against whom such funds were collected or spent, or in connection with the exercise of any of the powers or privileges or rights under any law of this Commonwealth, including (but not limited to) collection of income tax, corporate taxes, education, public or school education and government employee benefits.”
