Inheritance Tax Return; Extension of Time to File
(1)This rule applies to estates of decedents who die on or after January 1, 2003 and before January 1, 2012.
(2)The executor shall, not more than nine months after the date of the decedent’s death, file with the department an inheritance tax return, Form IT-1. A complete copy of the federal estate tax return and schedules must be filed with the Oregon Form IT-1. If the estate is not required to file a federal estate tax return, the executor must prepare a federal estate tax return and schedules reflecting federal estate tax law in effect December 31, 2000 and file that return and schedules with the Oregon inheritance tax return.
(3)If the executor cannot file a return within nine months, the department may allow additional time, usually not to exceed six months, to file the return. A copy of the federal extension request must be attached to the front of the Oregon return when filed and will serve as evidence of a granted extension by the department.
(4)If the Internal Revenue Service denies the extension request, but grants a period of time from the date of denial in which to file the federal return without imposition of delinquency charges, the department will not impose delinquency charges if the Oregon return is received by the department within one month from the last date on which the Internal Revenue Service would accept the federal return without imposition of delinquency charges. A copy of the denied extension request must be attached to the front of the Oregon return at the time of filing.
(5)An extension of time to file does not relieve the estate from the five percent penalty for failure to pay the tax on or before the original due date. Interest accrues during the extension period.
