If you were in business on January 1st, 2020, you are responsible for the 2020 taxes.  Multnomah County does not prorate tax liability for Buyers and Sellers.  This is the responsibility of the Property Owner.

Your property value was determined on January 1st, 2020, before the COVID-19 pandemic, and is not reflective of current market conditions.

Businesses closed after January 1st need to be reported to our office.  Please call 503-988-3326 and ask for the Business Personal Property Group.
