Personal Income Tax

ORS 316.292
Credit for taxes paid another state


For purposes of this section, an estate or trust is considered a resident of the state which taxes the income of the estate or trust irrespective of whether the income is derived from sources within that state.


Notwithstanding the limitations contained in ORS 316.082 (Credit for taxes paid another state) and 316.131 (Credit allowed to nonresident for taxes paid to state of residence), if an estate or trust is a resident of this state and also a resident of another state, the estate or trust shall be allowed a credit against the taxes imposed under this chapter for income taxes imposed by and paid to the other state, subject to the following conditions:


Credit shall be allowed only for the proportion of the taxes paid to the other state as the income taxable under this chapter and also subject to tax in the other state bears to the entire income upon which the taxes paid to the other state are imposed.


The credit shall not exceed the proportion of the tax payable under this chapter as the income subject to tax in the other state and also taxable under this chapter bears to the entire income taxable under this chapter. [1969 c.493 §45; 1985 c.802 §10; 1991 c.838 §7]
Chapter 316
