If approved by voters, Arts Education and Access Tax will impose a permanent flat tax of $35 per person on all adult city residents who receive any income and meet certain poverty thresholds established by the city.


Because the Arts Tax would be a flat tax levied on everyone who meets certain income and poverty conditions, the tax is a head tax (also known as a poll tax).

The Oregon Legislature outlawed head taxes in 1907. The head tax was so unpopular that the voters of Oregon added the ban to the Oregon Constitution in 1910. That ban is spelled out in Article IX, Section 1a of the Oregon Constitution: "No poll or head tax shall be levied or collected in Oregon."
