Beaverton is divided into 18 different tax code areas.  Your tax code depends on those agencies levying taxes in each geographical area.  For last fiscal year 2017-2018, the total countywide property tax rate ranged from $18.58 to $22.32.  The City of Beaverton’s portion was $4.38 per $1,000 of a property’s assessed value.

For the fiscal year 2018-19 tax year, this information will not be available until late November 2018 after the County Assessor completes the tax assessment process and property tax statements are mailed.

Estimated Taxes for Fiscal Year 2018-19

Beaverton’s tax rate for FY 2018-19 is expected to increase by 5 cents to $4.43. The 5 cent increase is dedicated to two areas; 3 cents for the Library’s operations and 2 cents for the Police Department’s operations to hire two additional police officers. This rate, when applied to Beaverton’s total taxable assessed valuation of $10,243,540,000, will produce revenues of $41,925,288.  Your $4.43 tax rate is comprised of two components:

  • $0.21 for debt service on the library building and the new Public Safety Building
  • $4.22 for general government operations (police, library, and street lighting)

General government operations tax levy is subject to Measure 50. Provisions of Measure 50 established a maximum permanent tax rate. The City’s maximum permanent tax rate is $4.62.Our citizens approved this new property tax base in November 1996. The new tax base will fund public safety needs in proportion to the City’s population growth.
