PORTLAND The deadline to pay Portland s Arts Tax on time has passed.

The city s revenue bureau said it has received approximately $7.6 million in arts tax payments from more than 248,000 people. The city expects to collect $8.3 million by June 30.

Once the city finishes processing the tax payments, it will issue refunds in July to those who don t need to pay.

Collection letters will be sent in August. Portland residents who failed to pay the tax by June 10 will be charged a $15 late fee.
