City of Portland Announces Business Amnesty Program

The city of Portland, Oregon and Multnomah County, have announced a brief amnesty program for businesses with delinquent taxes.  The window is very narrow, but this provides businesses with incentives to come into compliance.

For the period between May 15th and July 16th, 2012, certain businesses which voluntarily enter the program will be entitled to a full waiver of penalties and a 50% reduction of interest if tax returns are filed for all years of unreported business activity.  This applies to contractors that had projects within the Portland/Multnomah area, have never filed tax returns or registered with this jurisdiction and may have tax liabilities associated with this work.

For more information, visit, or the anonymous hotline at (503) 823-6881.
