Portland to collect art tax

Portland's new citywide arts tax, approved by voters in November, is being collected by tax day.

Due annually by April 15, Portland’s new $35 income tax for income-earning adult residents of Portland (and exempting any taxpayer under the federal poverty limit) is expected to generate about $12.2 million in annual net revenue. Nearly two thirds of city voters approved the measure, officially called the Arts Education & Access Fund.

A new website, www.artstax.net, answers frequently asked questions; provides an overview of the fund’s investments, its Citizen Oversight Committee, and the city code, rules and policies; and offers online payment and exemption request options.

We do receive retirement income (social security and railroad retirement).
So is that "income tax"?
