6.09.020 Fee Imposed.

For the privilege of facilitating a Transient Lodging Occupancy of a Short-Term Rental within the City of Portland, a Booking Agent or Transient Lodging Intermediary shall pay to the City a fee of $4 per night for each Transient Lodging Occupancy.  This fee is due each night on any occupancy between one and 30 nights at a Short-Term Rental Accommodation.  If the occupancy exceeds 30 continuous days, the fee is no longer due for any of the nights, and if collected, must be refunded to the Guest.  This fee may be passed onto the Guest if the receipt provided to the Guest separately states this nightly fee, identifying the fee as “Portland Housing and Homelessness Fee”.  This fee is not assessed on Booking Agents or Transient Lodging Intermediaries who only facilitate the rental of rooms of a Hotel defined in Chapter 6.09.  Additionally, Booking Agents or Transient Lodging Intermediaries who facilitate the rental of rooms of a Hotel as defined in Chapter 6.09, in addition to Short-Term Rentals are not required to collect this fee on Hotel room rentals.
