Oregon has earned its reputation nationally for being a cost competitive location for business. Recent national rankings reflect an economy that balances innovation, cost-efficiency, and a favorable tax environment with quality of life.

Notably, Oregon has no sales tax, no inventory tax (a single sales factor that benefits large employers with multiple operations), and an affordable property tax system.

Average industrial, commercial, and residential power costs are 25% below the national average, and nearly half those in California. With continued in-migration, labor costs are also among the most affordable on the West Coast.
