SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Nearly three years after voting to raise taxes on corporations and the wealthy, Oregon voters will weigh in again this November on a few more tweaks to the state's tax code.

The three tax-related measures on this year's ballot haven't generated the sort of bitter, big-money campaigns that drove a wedge between voters in early 2010. But each of the current measures has developed its own controversy.

Measure 79 would ban taxes on the transfer of real-estate. Measure 84 would eliminate Oregon's estate tax. And Measure 85 would throw out a tax break known as the "corporate kicker."
