Listing of tax-deferred property
  • interest accrual

(1) If eligibility for deferral of homestead property is established as provided in ORS 311.666 (Definitions for ORS 311.666 to 311.701) to 311.701 (Senior Property Tax Deferral Revolving Account), the Department of Revenue shall notify the county assessor and the county assessor shall show on the current ad valorem assessment and tax roll that the property is tax-deferred property by an entry clearly designating the property as tax-deferred property.

(2) When requested by the department, the tax collector shall send to the department the tax statement for each tax-deferred property as soon as the taxes are extended upon the roll.

(3) Interest shall accrue on the actual amount of taxes advanced to the county for the tax-deferred property at the rate of six percent per annum.

(4)(a) For property taxes deferred after October 3, 1979, the state liens provided by ORS 311.673 (State liens against tax-deferred property) and 311.679 (Estimate of deferred taxes) and recorded under ORS 311.675 (Recording liens) shall be for the actual amount of taxes advanced to the counties and not for the gross amount of taxes for which the property would be liable as shown on the tax statement for each tax-deferred property.

(b) For taxes deferred prior to October 3, 1979, the lien under ORS 311.673 (State liens against tax-deferred property) is for the gross amount of taxes extended upon the tax roll against each tax-deferred property and interest shall continue to accrue on the gross amount of taxes rather than on the actual amount of taxes paid to the county.
