Tuesday Is Deadline For Portland ‘Arts Tax’
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Tuesday is federal income tax day, of course. In Portland it’s also arts tax day.
It’s the deadline for the $35 arts tax that was approved in 2012 by voters.
The tax is designed to raise $12 million a year for art and music teachers and related groups and projects.
Failing to pay the arts tax brings a penalty of an additional $35.
