Posted by: Linda Keast
Here are a few friendly reminders as we get closer to tax day:
- Tuesday April 18, 2017 is the Oregon due date for 2016 personal income tax returns.
- Wednesday, March 15, 2017 was the Oregon due date for 2016 calendar year partnership returns. Oregon S corporation returns are due the 15th day of the month following the federal due date. For a calendar year S corporation, the Oregon return is due by April 17, 2017.
Reduced Rate for Pass Through Entities
If you intend to elect the reduced tax rate for pass through entity income, remember that it is an irrevocable election for each tax year that must be made on either the original return, or an amended return filed before the original due date. Extension filing with the election is permitted provided that is the original filing. An amended return is not permitted to modify the election past the original due date.
Revenue Online provides many conveniences for practitioners. Once you have signed up for an online account and have linked your client’s account with your own, you will be able to view such activities such as estimated payments made by, or notices sent to, your client. To link your client’s account to your own, you will need account information such as a recent payment amount, an entry on a recent tax return, or a letter ID from a letter we've sent.
New Practitioner Phone Line
We have a new practitioner phone line. This line has been created to allow practitioners a dedicated line to leave a question or issue for resolution. The number for this message line is (503) 947-3541. Messages are checked daily, and calls are returned within three business days. If you have statute/rule questions only, you can still email firstname.lastname@example.org.
