  • meaning of terms

Any term used in ORS 118.005 (Definitions for ORS 118.005 to 118.840) to 118.840 (Final accounting or discharge of executor or administrator) has the same meaning as when used in a comparable context in the laws of the federal Internal Revenue Code relating to federal estate taxes, unless a different meaning is clearly required or the term is specifically defined in ORS 118.005 (Definitions for ORS 118.005 to 118.840) to 118.840 (Final accounting or discharge of executor or administrator). Any reference in ORS 118.005 (Definitions for ORS 118.005 to 118.840) to 118.840 (Final accounting or discharge of executor or administrator) to the Internal Revenue Code means the federal Internal Revenue Code as amended and in effect on December 31, 2000, except where the Legislative Assembly has specifically provided otherwise.
