ORS 316.124
Determination of adjusted gross income of nonresident partner


(1)

In determining the adjusted gross income of a nonresident partner of any partnership, there shall be included only that part derived from or connected with sources in this state of the partner’s distributive share of items of partnership income, gain, loss and deduction (or item thereof) entering into the federal adjusted gross income of the partner, as such part is determined under rules adopted by the Department of Revenue in accordance with the general rules in ORS 316.127 (Income of nonresident from Oregon sources).

(2)

In determining the sources of a nonresident partner’s income, no effect shall be given to a provision in the partnership agreement which:

(a)

Characterizes payments to the partner as being for services or for the use of capital, or allocated to the partner, as income or gain from sources outside this state, a greater proportion of the partner’s distributive share of partnership income or gain than the ratio of partnership income or gain from sources outside this state to partnership income or gain from all sources, except as authorized in subsection (4) of this section; or

(b)

Allocates to the partner a greater proportion of a partnership item of loss or deduction connected with sources in this state than the proportionate share of the partner, for federal income tax purposes, of partnership loss or deduction generally, except as authorized in subsection (4) of this section.

(3)

Any modification to federal taxable income described in this chapter that relates to an item of partnership income, gain, loss or deduction (or item thereof) shall be made in accordance with the partner’s distributive share, for federal income tax purposes of the item to which the modification relates, but limited to the portion of such item derived from or connected with sources in this state.

(4)

The department may, on application, authorize the use of such other methods of determining a nonresident partner’s portion of partnership items derived from or connected with sources in this state, and the modifications related thereto, as may be appropriate and equitable, on such terms and conditions as it may require.

(5)

A nonresident partner’s distributive share of items of income, gain, loss or deduction (or item thereof) shall be determined under ORS 314.714 (Character of partnership income) (2). The character of partnership items for a nonresident partner shall be determined under ORS 314.714 (Character of partnership income) (1). [1989 c.625 §32 (enacted in lieu of 316.352)]

Notes of Decisions

Guaranteed distributions to nonresident partners are subject to apportionment and taxation as part of distributive share of partnership income. Pratt & Larsen Tile v. Dept. of Rev., 13 OTR 270 (1995)

Treating guaranteed payments as partnership proceeds is not inconsistent with treating Oregon share of those proceeds as ordinary income under ORS 314.712. Reeve/Tubbs v. Dept. of Revenue, 15 OTR 148 (2000), aff’d 333 Or 190, 37 P3d 981 (2001)

Chapter 316

Notes of Decisions

Unless the divorce decree specifically designates that payments are for child support, payments will be treated as alimony. Henderson v. Dept. of Rev., 5 OTR 153 (1972)

The goal of this chapter is to incorporate all of the provisions of the federal Internal Revenue Code; taxable income should be adjusted whenever the result of the adjustment is to give effect to the policies or principles of the federal Internal Revenue Code, even though no express authority for the adjustment is present in the statutes. Christian v. Dept. of Rev., 269 Or 469, 526 P2d 538 (1974); Smith v. Dept. of Rev., 270 Or 456, 528 P2d 73 (1974)

By its enactment of this chapter, the legislature intended to adopt §172 of the federal Internal Revenue Code allowing for the carryback and carryforward of net operating losses. Christian v. Dept. of Rev., 269 Or 469, 526 P2d 538 (1974)

Where plaintiff failed to appeal timely as required by this section, appeal rights were not preserved so that cause could be considered on merits. Dela Rosa v. Dept. of Rev., 11 OTR 201 (1989), aff’d 313 Or 284, 832 P2d 1228 (1992)

Where taxpayers paid foreign income taxes on foreign income and claimed foreign taxes paid as federal tax credit and as state business expense deduction, taxpayers who claim federal foreign tax credit are entitled only to foreign tax deduction provided in ORS 316.690. Whipple v. Dept. of Rev., 309 Or 422, 788 P2d 994 (1990)

For purposes of claim preclusion, all issues regarding taxpayer’s income tax liability for tax year constitute same claim. U.S. Bancorp v. Dept. of Revenue, 15 OTR 13 (1999)
