School Construction Excise Tax

In 2007, the Oregon State Legislature passed a law (SB1036) that will help Oregon school districts pay for a portion of the cost of new or expanded school facilities. The bill allows school boards, in cooperation with cities and counties, to tax new residential and non-residential development. This tax will require developers to share the cost of growth with school districts. For more information about the tax, who has to pay it, collection details and implementation dates, please see the attached fact sheet.
