REGULATION 20171218 

  1. Residence 

In order to avoid taxing individuals not residents of the city but who retain a city mailing address only, the following notice shall be included with the tax return:  

If you are requesting that your account be inactivated due to your moving from the jurisdiction with no intent to return, although retaining a mailing address within the jurisdiction as your address of record, please enter the date of your move and the reason, and attach supporting documentation with regard to your relocation.  

Any person found falsely denying residence will be prosecuted as for income tax evasion. 

By order of the Hillsboro City Tax Commissioner this 26th day of December 2017. /s/ Sherry Davis
