Determination by Agreement


(1)

In General: A determination may take the form of an agreement made pursuant to this section. Such an agreement is intended to provide an expeditious method for obtaining an adjustment under ORS 314.105 (Definitions for ORS 314.105 to 314.135) to 314.135 (Computation) and for offsetting deficiencies and refunds whenever possible. It shall not, in itself, establish the tax liability for the open year to which it relates, but it shall state the amount of tax for that year, as then determined. The tax may be the amount shown on the return as filed, or it may take into account any changes which have been made, or which are being made by documents executed concurrently with execution of the agreement.

(2)

(a)

(d)

A statement of how the item involved was treated in computing the tax liability set forth in the agreement; and

(3)

Execution of Agreement: The agreement under this section shall be signed by the taxpayer with respect to whom the determination is made. If an adjustment is made in a case of a related taxpayer, the agreement shall also be signed by the related taxpayer. Both the taxpayer and the related taxpayer may have the agreement signed on their behalf by an agent or attorney acting pursuant to a power of attorney on file with the Department.
