This tax is imposed effective July 1, 2019. Rentals starting July 1, 2019 will need to have the 3% tax imposed. Benton County is partnering with the City of Corvallis to collect this tax.
The following information applies for lodging operators to remit their lodging tax payments.
If your business is located within the limits of the City of Corvallis, this tax will be collected with the City of Corvallis lodging room tax that is already being collected (but amounts will be separated on the remittance form).
If your property is located outside the City of Corvallis limits, then you will need to initiate the tax collection process via the City of Corvallis Lodging Room Program at https://www.corvallisoregon.gov/finance/page/lodging-room-tax-program.
The TLT Remittance Form will be available in September 2019 for October submissions.
In addition, House Bill 2267 (passed in 2003) placed restrictions on any new or increased TLT imposed by cities or counties by requiring local governments to allow lodging tax collectors to retain at least 5% of the Benton County TLT as reimbursement for collecting the tax.
