Announcing the 2019 TSCC Local Budget Law Training Sessions

TSCC will be holding the 2019 local budget law training sessions next month on January 22 and January 31. These sessions cover all aspects of the Oregon Revised Statutes and Administrative Rules that control the preparation and management of local government and school district budgets. These sessions last about four hours, we serve refreshments, and there is no charge. All interested persons are invited to attend. Here are information and registration links to our two sessions:

The 2018-19 TSCC Annual Report

The Tax Supervising and Conservation Commission’s 2018-19 Annual Report is now available. The Commission has published this report annually since 1921. This is volume 96.

The report is unique to the state of Oregon: Multnomah County is the only county in the state to produce such a comprehensive report on local government and educational district finances. TSCC, the entity that creates the report, is a state function, however, independent of the county and governed by five commissioners appointed by the Governor.

The report contains budget, property tax, and debt information on forty-one jurisdictions principally located in Multnomah County. The jurisdictions range in size from small water districts with no employees and fewer than 100 customers, to the City of Portland, with a $4 billion budget and over 5,600 employees.

We post the report on the TSCC web site in easy-to-use FlipViewer format here.  Users can search it and download it. It can be annotated, highlighted, bookmarked, converted to PDF, and copied. If you would like a hard copy of the report, we can send that to you, too.

We welcome your feedback and questions. Please contact TSCC at  or 503 988-4131.
