Why did the 2013 Multnomah County property taxes go up so much?
My property taxes have gone up 10.5% this year – a huge jump over 2012. The big reason your property taxes went up is due to three bond measures that passed recently: Schools, Libraries, and Green space. Taxes also went up due to property values rising and the fairly predictable 3% annual increase.
