Food and Beverage Tax

This tax was established in 1990 and is one of the few voter approved sales tax in Oregon. A five percent tax is collected on all prepared food sold in Ashland. One percent is used to purchase open space for parks and four percent is used to offset the costs associated with the building of the new wastewater treatment plant. It was renewed and extended by electors in 2009. The tax expires on December 31st, 2030.
