Gross Income of Nonresidents; Apportionable Income
(1)Intentionally left blank —Ed.
(a)General. The gross income of a nonresident (other than one who is employed by another, as distinguished from doing business on the nonresident’s own account) from a business, trade, profession or occupation (including independent contractor) is determined in the same manner as is the gross income of a resident from a similar activity, but includes only income from the business, trade, profession or occupation carried on in this state. Net income from Oregon sources shall be determined by apportionment in a manner consistent with ORS 314.605 (Short title) through 314.667 (Additional methods to determine extent of business activity in this state) and the rules adopted thereunder.
(b)Exception: Various federal laws affect the application of Oregon tax laws to income received by nonresidents from rail, motor, air and water carriers. See OAR 150-316-0173 (Gross Income of Nonresidents; Federal Laws Affecting Nonresident Employees of Motor, Rail, Air and Water Carriers).
(2)Rents. The gross income of a nonresident from rents includes all rents received from property, whether real or personal, located within this state.
(3)S Corporations. The taxable income of an S corporation that elects to be taxed under the provisions of IRC Section 1362 which is derived from or connected with sources from this state is taxable income to nonresident shareholders for tax years beginning after December 31, 1972. Net operating losses of an S corporation derived from or connected with sources from this state are deductible by nonresident shareholders. Net operating losses shall be determined under IRC Section 1366. If an S corporation of Oregon commercial domicile is liquidated any gain or loss from liquidation is Oregon source income. Nonresident shareholders shall report their proportionate share of the gain or loss on their individual Oregon income tax returns as income from Oregon sources.
(4)Fiduciary fees. Oregon source income of a nonresident includes compensation received for services performed as a fiduciary of an Oregon estate or trust.
