Notwithstanding ORS 267.385 (Employer payroll tax) (1) and subject to ORS 267.260 (Withdrawal ordinance) (3) and (6), an increase in any tax imposed on wages or on net earnings from self-employment that is authorized by a mass transit district under ORS 267.385 (Employer payroll tax) (1) on or after January 1, 2010, must be phased in over a 10-year period. The district shall by ordinance set forth the increments by which the increase in tax is phased in. Subject to ORS 267.260 (Withdrawal ordinance) (3) and (6), each annual increment may not increase the rate of tax by more than 0.02 percent of the wages or net earnings from self-employment. [2009 c.253 §2]
