ORS 320.080¹
Procedure on failure to pay tax or penalty

(1) If any tax or penalty imposed by ORS 320.005 (Definitions for ORS 320.005 to 320.150) to 320.150 (Oregon State Lottery assistance in tax collection responsibilities) is not paid as required by ORS 320.005 (Definitions for ORS 320.005 to 320.150) to 320.150 (Oregon State Lottery assistance in tax collection responsibilities) within 30 days after the date that the written notice and demand for payment required under ORS 305.895 (Action against property before issuance of warrant prohibited) is mailed, the Department of Revenue shall issue a warrant directed to the sheriff of any county of the state commanding the sheriff to levy upon and sell the real and personal property of the person or persons named in the warrant and liable for the tax found within the county, for the payment of the amount thereof with the added penalty and the cost of executing the warrant, and to return the warrant to the department and pay to it the money collected by virtue thereof by a time to be therein specified not more than 30 days from the date of the warrant. A copy of the warrant shall be mailed or delivered to the taxpayer by the department at the taxpayer’s last-known address.

(2) The sheriff shall, within five days after the receipt of the warrant, record with the clerk of the county a copy thereof. Thereupon the clerk shall enter in the County Clerk Lien Record the names of the persons mentioned in the warrant, and the amount of the tax and penalty for which the warrant is issued and the date when such copy is recorded. Thereupon the amount of the warrant so recorded shall become a lien upon the title to any interest in real property or personal property of the persons against whom it is issued in the same manner as a judgment that creates a judgment lien under ORS chapter 18. The sheriff shall thereupon proceed upon the same in all respects, with like effect and in the manner prescribed by law in respect to execution issued against property upon judgment of a court of record, and the sheriff is entitled to the same fees for services in executing the warrant to be collected in the same manner. If a warrant is returned not satisfied in full, the department shall have the same remedies to enforce the claim for taxes as if the people of the state had recovered judgment for the amount of the tax.
