2015 ORS 316.130¹
Determination of taxable income of full-year nonresident

(1) The taxable income for a full-year nonresident individual is adjusted gross income attributable to sources within this state determined under ORS 316.127 (Income of nonresident from Oregon sources), with the modifications (except those provided under subsection (2) of this section) as otherwise provided under this chapter and other laws of this state applicable to personal income taxation, less the deductions allowed under subsection (2) of this section.

(2)(a) A full-year nonresident individual shall be allowed the deduction for a standard deduction or itemized deductions allowable to a resident under ORS 316.695 (Additional modifications of taxable income) (1) in the proportion provided in ORS 316.117 (Proration between Oregon income and other income for nonresidents, part-year residents and trusts).

(b) A full-year nonresident individual shall be allowed to deduct the amount of any accrued federal income taxes and foreign country income taxes as provided in ORS 316.690 (Foreign income taxes) in the proportion provided in ORS 316.117 (Proration between Oregon income and other income for nonresidents, part-year residents and trusts).

(c)(A) A full-year nonresident individual shall be allowed to deduct the amount of any alimony or separate maintenance payments paid during such individual’s taxable year in the proportion provided in ORS 316.117 (Proration between Oregon income and other income for nonresidents, part-year residents and trusts) except that in determining the proportion the taxpayer’s adjusted gross income shall not include a deduction for alimony. For purposes of this paragraph, "alimony or separate maintenance payment" has the meaning given the phrase in section 215 of the Internal Revenue Code.

(B) No deduction shall be allowed under this paragraph if the alimony or separate maintenance payment is not includable in the gross income of the nonresident individual for federal income tax purposes under section 682 of the Internal Revenue Code.

(3)(a) A full-year nonresident who is a self-employed individual shall be allowed to deduct that individual’s contributions to a qualified plan, deductible on that individual’s federal income tax return pursuant to section 401 of the Internal Revenue Code, in the proportion that the individual’s earned income from Oregon sources bears to the individual’s earned income from all sources. "Earned income" has the meaning given in section 401(c)(2) of the Internal Revenue Code. If the numerator of the fraction described in this paragraph is greater than the denominator, the proration of 100 percent shall be used.

(b) A full-year nonresident shall be allowed to deduct that individual’s qualified retirement contributions, deductible on that individual’s federal income tax return pursuant to section 219 of the Internal Revenue Code, in the proportion that the individual’s compensation from Oregon sources bears to the individual’s compensation from all sources. "Compensation" has the meaning given in section 219(f)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code.

(c) A full-year nonresident individual shall be allowed to deduct the aggregate amounts paid in cash to a medical savings account, deductible on the individual’s federal income tax return pursuant to section 220 of the Internal Revenue Code, in the proportion that the individual’s compensation from Oregon sources bears to the individual’s compensation from all sources. Distributions from a medical savings account, if excluded from income for federal income tax purposes, shall be excluded for Oregon income tax purposes. Distributions from a medical savings account, if included in income for federal tax purposes, shall be included in income for Oregon tax purposes to the extent that an exclusion has been allowed for contributions to the medical savings account for Oregon tax purposes in a previous year.

Notes of Decisions

Unless the divorce decree specifically designates that pay­ments are for child support, pay­ments will be treated as alimony. Henderson v. Dept. of Rev., 5 OTR 153 (1972)

The goal of this chapter is to incorporate all of the pro­vi­sions of the federal Internal Revenue Code; taxable income should be adjusted whenever the result of the adjust­ment is to give effect to the policies or principles of the federal Internal Revenue Code, even though no express authority for the adjust­ment is present in the statutes. Christian v. Dept. of Rev., 269 Or 469, 526 P2d 538 (1974); Smith v. Dept. of Rev., 270 Or 456, 528 P2d 73 (1974)

By its enact­ment of this chapter, the legislature intended to adopt §172 of the federal Internal Revenue Code allowing for the carryback and carryforward of net operating losses. Christian v. Dept. of Rev., 269 Or 469, 526 P2d 538 (1974)

Where plaintiff failed to ap­peal timely as re­quired by this sec­tion, ap­peal rights were not preserved so that cause could be considered on merits. Dela Rosa v. Dept. of Rev., 11 OTR 201 (1989), aff'd 313 Or 284, 832 P2d 1228 (1992)

Where taxpayers paid foreign income taxes on foreign income and claimed foreign taxes paid as federal tax credit and as state business expense deduc­tion, taxpayers who claim federal foreign tax credit are entitled only to foreign tax deduc­tion provided in ORS 316.690 (Foreign income taxes). Whipple v. Dept. of Rev., 309 Or 422, 788 P2d 994 (1990)

For purposes of claim preclusion, all issues re­gard­ing taxpayer's income tax liability for tax year constitute same claim. U.S. Bancorp v. Dept. of Revenue, 15 OTR 13 (1999)
