Rule Rule 123-674-3000


For purposes of ORS 285C.050 to 285C.250 and this division of administrative rules, the Firm/applicant becomes authorized only upon fulfillment of OAR 123-674-2500(5). (As applicable, the Established County Wage is primarily setat thispoint based on the Current County Wage)


Authorization serves to establish and address critical issues related to a Firm/applicants knowledge of the enterprise zone, the eligibility of its business activity, Existing Employment, clarity in the unlikely event of concurrent Applications, and so forth.


Authorization does not as such govern the qualified property subject to exemption under ORS 285C.170 or 285C.175, other than the basic, general parameters described in OAR 123-674-3100, in that:


The anticipated timing, estimates and descriptions of the investment in qualified property in the Application are not in and of themselves binding and do not serve a regulatory function.


The two exceptions to this section are qualified property of a headquarter-type facility (see OAR 123-674-1700) or in a rural renewable energy development zone (see OAR 123-680), in that the actual, completed project or facility must conform substantially to representations in the Application to enjoy the standard exemption under ORS 285C.175.


Such authorization must already be in effect for the Firm/applicant to use the exemption on qualified property under ORS 285C.170 for work in progress, as described in OAR 123-674-6000, although the Firm/applicant may apply for and receive exemption on property as otherwise allowed under ORS 307.330.


In order to receive exemption under ORS 285C.175 on qualified property that is in service:


The zone sponsor/county assessor shall authorize the Firm/applicant, at the absolute latest, before it files its initial claim for exemption with property schedule under ORS 285C.220 and 285C.225.


Such an exemption claim may be provisionally filed pending authorization delayed for extenuating circumstances through no fault of the Firm/applicant, but authorization must occur before the firm may qualify for the exemption.
