Transit Payroll Tax Information

SMART Bus at the WES Station
Transit (Payroll & Self-Employment) Tax
The city’s transit system, SMART, provides service throughout the community as well as connections to Tri-Met in Portland, CAT in Canby, and Cherriots in Salem. Transit services are paid for by a combination of payroll taxes levied on businesses located in or performing work in Wilsonville (assessed on gross payroll and/or self-employment earnings), federal grants, and rider fares.


Once you have established your business license, the customer number is also your transit tax account number. You will begin receiving quarterly payroll transit tax forms at the end of each quarter and/or self-employment forms at the end of the year. For your convenience, the forms are also available below.
