Fiscal Year 2020-2021
Oregon property taxes are collected by counties. They are then remitted to the various jurisdictions, such as:
- Fire district
- Park district
- Port of Portland
- School district
- The City
- Washington County
Beaverton is divided into 18 different tax code areas. Your tax code depends on those agencies levying taxes in each geographical area. For last fiscal year 2019-2020, the total countywide property tax rate ranged from $18.28 to $22.69. The City of Beaverton’s portion was $4.43 per $1,000 of a property’s assessed value.
For the fiscal year 2020-21 tax year, this information will not be available until late November 2020 after the County Assessor completes the tax assessment process and property tax statements are mailed.
Estimated Taxes for Fiscal Year 2020-21
Beaverton’s tax rate for FY 2020-21 is not expected to increase from $4.43 levied last year. This rate, when applied to Beaverton’s total taxable assessed valuation of $10,623,637,000, will produce revenues of $42,830,213. Your $4.43 tax rate is comprised of two components:
- $0.21 for debt service on the new Public Safety Building
- $4.22 for general government operations (city administration, community programs, community development, public safety, engineering, and library services)
General government operations tax levy is subject to Measure 50. Provisions of Measure 50 established a maximum permanent tax rate. The City’s maximum permanent tax rate is $4.62. Our citizens approved this new property tax base in November 1996. The new tax base will fund public safety needs in proportion to the City’s population growth.
