2019R1 HB 2264


This bill adds farming tools and implements to tax-exempt personal property and adds preparing farm crops for shipping as tax-exempt use of personal property.

Fiscal Responsibility
Exempts from property taxation property consisting of machinery, equipment, tools, implements or fixtures used primarily in agricultural or horticultural activities or animal husbandry, regardless of whether property is considered real property, and adds such property to definition of "tangible personal property."

Free Markets
Farmers and ranchers sell their products into commodity markets where the market prices are not defined by the cost of production. Equipment is central to working more productively and it can be very expensive. This bill will help make decisions to purchase.



Oregon Citizens' Lobby is a group of citizens whose mission is to help empower Oregonians by monitoring the legislative process in Oregon. We analyze bills and track them throughout their life cycle. The bills receive a score and legislators receive a grade based upon the five core principles of Oregon Citizens' Lobby.

The result of our work is posted on this website for the public to review. Our hope is that this information will help citizens better understand proposed legislation, which will in turn allow them to give relevant testimony on bills, petition their government for redress of grievances, and hold these politicians accountable at the ballot box for their actions.
