Transient Occupancy Tax
The City of Woodburn collects a nine percent (9%) Transient Occupancy Tax which goes directly into the General Fund.
A transient is any individual who exercises occupancy for a period of 30 consecutive calendar days or less, counting portions of calendar days as full days. Each transient shall pay a tax in the amount of nine percent (9%) of the rent charged by the operator (Proprietor of the hotel in any capacity).
These tax dollars are collected under the authority of the City's Transient Occupancy Tax Ordinance (No. 2057). Lodging providers are responsible for collecting the tax, and may withhold ten percent (10%) of the collections to cover their costs of administration.
On or before the fifteenth day of the month following each monthly collection, a return for the preceeding monthly tax collections shall be filed with the Finance Department on one of the Transient Occupancy Tax Remittance Forms located below from the hotel and/or the intermediary.
