The Arts Education and Access Income Tax (Arts Tax) will fund Portland school teachers and art focused non-profit organizations in Portland.
Each Portland resident, age 18 and older, must file either:
One or more people in the household earn income above the federal poverty level and have $1,000 or more income (tax due); OR
You have less than $1,000 of income (do not include income from social security) but live with a spouse or parent that has income above the federal poverty level (no tax due); OR
Your income is only from certain non-taxable sources (no tax due).
Your household is at or below the federal poverty level (all income, including social security, is counted to determine if you qualify) (no tax due)
If due, the Arts Tax is $35 per person. Save time and file online (ACH, Visa or MasterCard - no convenience fees in 2013).
2012 Arts Tax filings received after November 1, 2013 will be assessed a penalty.
If you have already filed, but have a balance due, you can use your confirmation number to pay an Arts Tax bill (by ACH, Visa or MasterCard).
