Background

TigerAs previously reported, the new Oregon Corporate Activity Tax (the “CAT”) went into effect on January 1, 2020.  The new law is quite complex and arguably not very well thought out by lawmakers.  Although the Oregon Department of Revenue (the “DOR”) has worked hard to bring clarity to the CAT through rulemaking, many questions remain, including application of the many exemptions and computation of the required tax estimates.  Despite pleas by small businesses to repeal or at least put the CAT in hibernation until the uncertainties resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic have been alleviated, both Oregon’s Governor and the state’s lawmakers have proclaimed in so many words that the show must go on – the CAT will remain in place, even during these horrific times.
