Affordable Housing Construction Excise Tax

Effective August 1, 2016, the City of Portland is collecting a tax on residential and commercial building projects with improvements valued at $100,000 or more. The tax is calculated as 1% of the permit valuation. The Portland Housing Bureau proposed the tax to help fund affordable housing programs and Portland City Council approved it in June, 2016.
