Lincoln City Homepage Letters to the editor

Welcome taxpayers!

Oregon, is going to tax your EIP COVID-19 payments from 2020. Now, you say, what about the money I received in 2021?

Well, bad news since the checks were written in late December — specifically the 31st — it’s included in your 2020 income. No…that can’t be true. More bad news, it is.

There are six states that allow deductions against your federal tax return and of those states only Missouri has passed a bill preventing EIP payments from taxation.
Well, well, well. We can think about hoping that Dick Andersen’s bill to prevent this money grab passes, but since Oregon is mostly Democrat, don’t get your hopes up.

So, besides manipulating our rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine, Kate Brown has her hands in your pocket, taking money that is supposed to help struggling residents.

It’s not my fault, I promise you, but if Andersen’s bill does pass, I’ll take partial credit.

  1. I don’t pay taxes but my boyfriend bust’s his butt an has worked through this pandemic each and every day. He pays child support an made 44,000 an brought home 26,000 he did his taxes and he doesn’t get his federal cause of child support an thanks to Kate brown an her games his state was refused this year . We are all hurting as she sits and has the nerve to make us all hurt a little more.

  2. As a tax payer I am appalled at what this state is it doing to the people is a state. The stimulus checks would never given as income. Kate Brown has made sure that everyone in this state is suffering more and more and more. Our taxation is very high. And I have to ask what are we getting for our money? Everyone struggling pay their bills keep their jobs and stay off the streets I’ve been homeless. I say that we should replace all of the politicians in this state. They have done nothing but put their hands in our pockets and make sure that they have the best living in the state. All politicians suck!
