6.09.040 Due Dates; Returns and Payments.

City Code Section

A.   The fee imposed by this Chapter is due and payable on or before the last day of the month for the preceding month or other reporting period allowed by the Division.   Amounts due are considered delinquent on the first of the month, or in the case when the due date falls on a Sunday or legal holiday as defined by ORS 187.010, amounts are delinquent on the first business day that follows.

B.   A return must be filed with the fee due on a form prescribed by the Division by the due date in Subsection A. above.  Returns must show the amount of the fee owed for the period.  The Division may require returns to include additional information to explain the fee calculation.

C.   The Booking Agent or Transient Lodging Intermediary required to file the return must deliver the return, together with the remittance of the fee amount due, to the Division at its office, either by personal delivery or mail.  If the return is mailed, the postmark will be considered the day of delivery for determining delinquencies.

D.   For good cause, the Division may extend the time for making any return or payment of the fee due for one month.  No further extension will be granted.  Any Booking Agent or Transient Lodging Intermediary granted an extension will pay interest at the rate of 1.25 percent for the month on the amount of fee due without proration for a portion of a month or reduction for any prepayments or credits available.  If an extension is granted and the assessment and interest due is not paid by the end of the extension period, then the interest will be added to the fee due for the computation of penalties and additional interest as detailed elsewhere in the Chapter.

E.   The Division, if deemed necessary in order to ensure payment or facilitate collection by the Division of the fee in any individual case, may require returns and payment of fees due for other than monthly periods.  If a Booking Agent or Transient Lodging Intermediary is required to report on a different basis, the Division will provide a schedule showing the filing periods, due dates and delinquent dates.
