Metro is a Portland, Oregon regional government, covering the three Portland-area counties. In 2020, Metro voters approved new local business and personal income taxes, which we summarized in a prior alert. In November 2020, Multnomah County, Oregon voters approved a graduated personal income tax, which we also summarized in a prior alert. Multnomah County includes Portland.
To implement the new taxes, Metro recently adopted three new chapters to the Metro Code, Chapter 7.05, Chapter 7.06 and Chapter 7.07, and Multnomah County recently adopted Ordinance No. 1293, which added sections 11.500 – 11.560 to Chapter 11 of the Multnomah County Code.
The new code provisions address many procedural and substantive tax issues that had been left open by the ballot measures. The Portland Revenue Bureau will administer both the Metro and county taxes.
