Oregon Administration of Revenue and Tax Laws; Appeals
ORS 305.460
Salary, expenses, disability and retirement of judge and magistrates


The judge of the tax court shall receive such salary as is provided by law. The presiding magistrate and magistrates of the tax court shall receive such salary as is fixed under the personnel plan established by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court pursuant to ORS 1.008 (Personnel plan, fiscal plan and property plan). The judge and magistrates shall receive no other allowances for services except as authorized by this section.


When the judge or a magistrate of the tax court holds court or performs any other official function away from the state capital, hotel bills and traveling expenses necessarily incurred by the judge or magistrate in the performance of that duty shall be paid by the state. Such expenses are to be paid upon the certificate of the judge or magistrate to the truth of an itemized statement of the expenses. The certificate of expenses is a sufficient voucher upon which the claim shall be paid as provided in ORS 293.295 (When claim against moneys in State Treasury may be paid) to 293.462 (Payment of overdue account charges). The Oregon Department of Administrative Services shall draw a warrant upon the State Treasurer for the amount thereof in favor of the tax court judge or magistrate.


The judge of the Oregon Tax Court shall be subject to the provisions of ORS 1.310 (Involuntary retirement of judges for disability) and 238.505 (Judges as PERS members) relating to disability and retirement to the same extent and in the same manner as a judge of a circuit court. A tax court magistrate shall be subject to the provisions of law relating to retirement for disability and retirement applicable to a state officer or employee.
