Close your Revenue Division tax account

Service
If you sold your business, changed your tax entity, or stopped your business activity in the City of Portland, Multnomah County, and/or the Metro jurisdictions, you must notify the Revenue Division to close your tax account(s).

Fewer than 15 minutes to complete.

Don't close the business tax account if:

  • There is contract (installment) sales from the sale of the business. This income is considered continuing business income and will require annual filings.
  • A taxfiler owns real property and intends to rent or lease it to others.
  • The business performs services inside Portland and/or Multnomah County.
  • The business provides services to customers who live in Portland and/or Multnomah County.

1) Download and fill out the Out of Business Notification form

When we receive notification that your business is no longer operating, we will make the necessary notations on your account(s). However, you are still required to file a final business tax return for the year in which you stopped doing business. Remember to check the "Final Return" checkbox (or "Ceased Business" checkbox on older year forms) on your final tax return.
