EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Lane County is leading in effort to track down businesses that aren’t paying personal property taxes in seven southwest Oregon counties.

The Register-Guard reports (https://bit.ly/1mlxsbF ) the Legislature approved a $252,000 grant for Lane County to lead the Southwest Oregon Assessment and Taxation Coalition. Other members are Coos, Curry, Douglas, Jackson, Josephine and Klamath counties.

Lane County Assessor Mike Cowles plans to hire a full-time appraiser and four temporary employees. They’ll be sending letters to businesses, reminding them about the law requiring them to pay taxes on equipment, computers and other moveable items if the value exceeds $16,000.
