Pay early! Pay online!

March 4, 2013 § Leave a comment

The City of Portland’s Revenue Bureau has recently launched www.artstax.net — and has officially begun collecting Portland’s new $35 income tax to establish the Arts Education & Access Fund.

Payments are due on April 15th. The Revenue Bureau estimates that nearly 400,000 Portland residents will be eligible to pay this $35 local income tax along with their state and federal returns this year. While the Revenue Bureau has developed a comprehensive collections plan including multiple mailings and an online payment method through www.artstax.net, they have made it clear that the more residents who pay online and pay early, the less money they will have to spend on collections. And every dollar saved will directly support the arts.

As supporters of Ballot Measure 26-146 and the Creative Advocacy Network, you all know that the arts improve our schools, shape our neighborhoods, fuel our economy and improve the livability of this city that we love. And now, with a simple annual $35 tax payment, we can ensure that every Portland resident has access to our city’s cultural and creative riches.

Pay early. Pay online. And bring the arts to life for every Portland classroom and community.
