Do I have to pay transient lodging taxes?

Yes, operators of accessory short-term rentals must collect transient lodging taxes (occupancy tax) from their overnight guests and remit these taxes to the City of Portland for both Portland and Multnomah County. This is how the tax revenue is distributed:

  • City of Portland: 6% (5% to City general fund; 1% to Travel Portland), and
  • Multnomah County: 5.5% (2.5% Convention Center Phase II, .275% hotel operators, 2.725% Convention Center Phase I)
