PORTLAND, Ore. – Do you still need to pay your Portland arts tax?

If so, today is the day to get it in - the deadline was extended to June 10 after the city's website crashed on the night of the first deadline.

The site crashed on May 15 because too many people tried to access the system at one time.

To prevent the system from overloading again, the city has limited the number of people who can file on the site at any one time. If the site is maxed out, new users will be asked to return in a few minutes and try again.

You can find the arts tax website at PortlandOregon.gov/artstax. If you have questions you can call (503) 865-4ART.
