Rule Rule 150-314-0250
Refunds; Net Operating Loss and Net Capital Loss Carryback Claims


(1)

Application. For purposes of this rule, provisions applying to individuals also apply to estates and trusts.

(2)

Extended period for refund claim.

(a)

A special period of limitations is provided under ORS 314.415 (Refunds)(5)(a) to claim a refund or credit attributable to an individual net operating loss (NOL) or corporation net capital loss carryback. A refund claim for an individual net operating loss or corporation net capital loss carryback year must be filed within three years from the due date (including extensions) of the taxable year of the net operating loss or net capital loss which results in the carryback.

(b)

The provision allowing refunds of tax within two years of the date of payment is not extended.

(3)

Carryback periods for individuals. The total number of years to which an NOL may be carried back or forward is the same for Oregon and federal (including exceptions and limitations).

(4)

Limitations on credit or refund.

(a)

If a claim for a credit or refund is based on an overpayment attributable to an individual net operating loss or corporation net capital loss carryback, the credit or refund may exceed the amount of tax paid within three years of when the return was filed or within two years immediately preceding the filing of the claim but only to the extent the overpayment is attributable to the net operating loss or net capital loss carryback.

(b)

If a claim for a credit or refund is based not only on an overpayment attributable to an individual net operating loss or corporation net capital loss carryback, but also on other items, the credit or refund may not exceed the sum of:

(A)

The amount of the overpayment attributable to the individual net operating loss or corporation net capital loss carryback, and

(B)

The balance of such overpayment not to exceed the amount of taxes paid within the periods provided in ORS 314.415 (Refunds)(2)(a).

(c)

Delinquent returns. If a taxpayer filed an original return after the three-year period for requesting a refund provided in ORS 314.415 (Refunds)(2)(a), but amends the same return for an individual net operating or corporation net capital loss carryback within the period allowed by ORS 314.415 (Refunds)(5)(a), a refund will be allowed. The refund will be limited to the amount of net tax liability shown on the original return. Any additional refund requested on the amended return is barred by ORS 314.415 (Refunds)(2)(a).

(5)

Treatment of carryover amounts. Although refunds for NOL years, individual net operating loss, or corporation net capital loss carryback years may be closed or limited under ORS 314.415 (Refunds) and this rule, the balance of any individual NOL or corporation net capital loss carryover amounts not fully absorbed in carryback years may be used in the computation of Oregon taxable income for all applicable carryover years to the same extent includable for federal.
