(b)

The difference in basis which results when a taxpayer has taken a federal credit, which requires as a condition of the use of the federal credit the reduction of the basis of an asset, and the federal credit is not allowable for Oregon tax purposes;

(c)

The difference in basis as a result of any deferral of gain which has been granted under federal tax law but not under Oregon tax law or granted under Oregon law but not granted under federal law;

(d)

The difference in basis under federal and Oregon tax law at the time the asset was acquired; or

Notes of Decisions

No state or federal constitutional provision or treaty requires Department of Revenue to allow deduction for foreign taxes greater than deduction allowed by ORS 316.690. Whipple v. Dept. of Rev., 309 Or 422, 788 P2d 994 (1990)

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)
