Residential Rental Registration Program

We are informing you that new Portland City Code 7.02.890 requires all owners of residential rental property located in the City of Portland to register all rental property by annually filing a schedule (Schedule R) that includes the addresses of all residential rental units owned within the City.

The purpose of the City of Portland’s Residential Rental Registration Program is to create a current and reliable inventory of rental housing units within the City.

Registration of residential rental property is required of all residential rental property owners or property managers for the tax year beginning on or after January 1, 2018 (due for most filers by Monday, April 15, 2019). Rental activity and rental location addresses are required to be filed on Schedule R and attached to the Business License Tax return or Annual Exemption Request.

For the 2018 tax year, there is no fee associated with the Residential Rental Registration Program. However, failure to submit your tax return and related tax documents, including the Schedule R, may result in penalties.

To comply with the Residential Rental Registration requirement, please complete these 3 easy steps:

  1. Go to
  2. Download and complete Schedule R – Residential Rental Registration
    (If you own 10 or more units, or wish to submit your Schedule R electronically, please use the Residential Rental Registration Import spreadsheet).
  3. Mail in completed Schedule R form with your Business License Tax return or exemption request to:
