Oregon Statutes - Chapter 671 - Architect; Landscape Professions and Business - Section 671.750 - Portland metropolitan area business licenses.

The Legislative Assembly intends to reduce the number of city business licenses that a landscape contracting business must obtain to conduct business in the Portland metropolitan area. The purpose of this section and ORS 671.755 is to enable a landscape contracting business to secure from the metropolitan service district one business license that will permit the landscape contracting business to conduct business in cities in which the landscape contracting business performs a limited amount of work and in which it does not have a principal place of business. The Legislative Assembly also intends that this section and ORS 671.755 apply only to landscape contracting businesses without regard to any subsequent expansion of the jurisdiction of the State Landscape Contractors Board over other businesses. It is the policy of this state that, to the maximum extent possible consistent with the requirements of this section and ORS 671.755, the cities within the boundaries of the metropolitan service district be allowed to control the imposition of business license taxes and to maintain the level of revenues obtained from those taxes. The amount and trends of revenue produced or distributed to each city is intended to reflect the landscape contracting business activity within the participating cities. [2007 c.541 §46]
