Top income tax rate: 9.9%
Property tax per capita: $1,292
Estate tax: 0.8% to 16% with a $1 million exemption

At 9.9 percent for top filers, Oregon's income tax is one of the highest in the country, behind Hawaii's and California's. The top rate affects more filers than it did last year (singles with income over $125,000, and married couples with income greater than $250,000) because Oregon eliminated its old 11 percent top bracket starting in 2013. Shoppers still enjoy not paying state or local sales tax, though.
