2011 ORS § 825.484¹
Effect of carrier tax law on other taxes
  • offset of fees or taxes erroneously paid

(1) The fees or taxes listed in ORS 825.474 (Motor carrier tax for use of highways), 825.476 (Carrier tax tables) and 825.480 (Substitute taxes for certain vehicles) shall be in addition to, and not in lieu of, other fees and taxes of the state, county or municipality which may be imposed, levied, assessed or collected against the business or property of such carrier. This section does not authorize the imposition of license fees by municipalities upon intercity carriers, or deprive any city within which a passenger motor vehicle, having a seating capacity of not more than seven passengers, is principally operated for hire, from imposing and collecting license fees upon and from such motor vehicle, or the owner or operator thereof, as to such portion of its operations as are wholly within the corporate limits of such city.

(2) ORS 319.510 (Short title) to 319.880 (Disposition of moneys) do not apply to vehicles or fuels used therein when the vehicles are subject to, and report and pay, the tax for the use of Oregon highways based upon the combined weight of the vehicle and in accordance with the weight group rates prescribed in ORS 825.474 (Motor carrier tax for use of highways), 825.476 (Carrier tax tables) and 825.480 (Substitute taxes for certain vehicles).

(3) When an audit of the operations of a carrier shows that the use fuel taxes reported and paid under ORS chapter 319 should have been reported and paid under this chapter, or that fees or taxes reported and paid under this chapter should have been reported and paid under ORS chapter 319, the fees or taxes erroneously reported and paid under one chapter need not be refunded but may be considered an offset of fees or taxes due under the other chapter.
