The Oregon Department of Revenue (DOR) will host a series of meetings across the state in March to provide information to business taxpayers and tax professionals about the administrative rules for Oregon's new Corporate Activity Tax (CAT).

Department representatives used input collected from stakeholders during a 12-stop tour in fall 2019 in prioritizing and writing the rules. March's meetings will include a presentation and discussion of the initial temporary rules.

The tour kicks off in Bend March 2 with a 6 to 7:30 p.m. meeting in Science 109 on the campus of Central Oregon Community College. Additional meetings are planned in Ontario, La Grande, The Dalles, Klamath Falls, Ashland, Eugene, Gresham, Coos Bay, Lincoln City, Seaside, and Keizer. The complete schedule<https://www.oregon.gov/DOR/programs/businesses/Documents/MarchEducationTourSchedule.pdf> can be found on the CAT page of the Department of Revenue website.

ACH payments now available

The ability to make online payments and apply for ACH credit are now available through Revenue Online.

If you want to make ACH payments, you must submit an ACH credit application for the Corporate Activity Tax (CAT). On the department's website<https://www.oregon.gov/DOR/Pages/index.aspx>, go to Revenue Online and scroll down to Tools. Now, click Apply for ACH credit and complete the application.

Once you've completed the application, you will receive a confirmation providing the routing and account number. Please note: You should not use account numbers from other tax programs. First quarter estimated payments for the CAT are due April 30.

Two new FAQ added

Answers to two new frequently asked questions have been added to the CAT page of the department's website <https://www.oregon.gov/DOR/Pages/index.aspx>.

The questions cover the topics:

  *   Are receipts from sales to Oregon wholesalers excludable? And;
  *   Can I exclude receipts from the sale of groceries?

The FAQ include high level summaries of the administrative rules and the topics that were determined not to require a rule.

Thank you,
