Notice regarding fee for MULTE applications on Inclusionary Housing projects

Public Notice
Important update about the Multiple-Unit Limited Tax Exemption Program

Effective July 1, Inclusionary Housing projects seeking approval for the Multiple-Unit Limited Tax Exemption (MULTE) Program will begin paying processing fees due to Multnomah County at permit issuance. Until now, the Portland Housing Bureau has paid these fees to Multnomah County on behalf of the projects.

Current County rates are $850 per unit in the building receiving the tax exemption up to a maximum amount of $9,000 per building. PHB reviewers will apply the fees within the City’s permitting system. The fees apply to any new permits which have not gone through pre-screening and are not yet under review as of July 1, 2022. 

For questions regarding the MULTE fee, please contact the IH hotline at 503-823-9042 or email
