The Portland Housing Bureau (PHB) administers the Limited Tax Exemption (LTE) programs on behalf of the City of Portland. The LTE programs support affordable housing and leverage private housing development to advance the City’s housing and economic prosperity goals in a time of declining resources and limited availability of public subsidy.

This report covers and provides data on program activity during Fiscal Year 2012-13, and estimates how that activity will affect property tax revenues for Tax Year 2013-14. Overall, the approximately 14,000 units currently receiving tax exemptions amount to roughly $18 million of foregone revenue to the City of Portland, Multnomah County, area school districts and other taxing jurisdictions for the year. Of the total 14,000 units, roughly 9,600 receive exemptions through the Non-Profit LTE program equaling close to $11 million in foregone revenue.

The net additional foregone revenue as a result of the LTE programs for the year after accounting for the number of units with exemptions ending is actually only about $200,000. The number of homeownership units with tax exemptions has decreased, largely due to the number of units with expiring exemptions but also because of increased compliance m

Fair Housing education and outreach are essential components of the Fair Housing Action Plan. When Mayor Hales and Commission Saltzman declared April 2014 as Fair Housing Month they also honored students Rebecca Celsi, an eighth grader from Access Academy and Medini Madhusudan, a fourth grader from Springville School. Their Fair Housing poster drawings won the first place for their age categories and they tell us why fair housing matters. Visit our Fair Housing web page to read the Fair Housing Report.
