2017 ORS 316.214¹
Withholding requirements for members of professional athletic teams

(1) A person who transacts business in the State of Oregon and who pays wages, salary, bonuses or other taxable income to a member of a professional athletic team, in lieu of the withholding requirements under ORS 316.167 (Withholding of tax required), shall withhold eight percent of the income as provided in this section and by rule of the Department of Revenue.

(2) The person withholding amounts under this section shall pay the amounts withheld to the Department of Revenue at the time and in the manner prescribed by the department by rule.

(3) If the member of a professional athletic team is a resident of the State of Oregon, all compensation paid to the member, whether or not attributable to duty days, is subject to withholding under this section.

(4) If the member of a professional athletic team is not a resident of the State of Oregon, a portion of the compensation paid to the member is subject to withholding under this section. The portion subject to withholding is that portion of compensation received for the tax year that bears the same ratio to total compensation received for the tax year as the number of duty days within this state bears to the total number of duty days spent both within and outside this state during the tax year.

(5) Notwithstanding the description of the portion of compensation subject to withholding in subsection (4) of this section, the Department of Revenue may provide by rule alternative methodologies for determining the portion of compensation subject to withholding under this section that the department determines to be fair and equitable.

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)
