2017 ORS 323.565¹
Exemption for sales to common carriers engaged in interstate or foreign passenger service
  • tax on carriers or persons authorized to sell tobacco products on the facilities of carriers

The taxes imposed by ORS 323.500 (Definitions for ORS 323.500 to 323.645) to 323.645 (Short title) do not apply to the sale of tobacco products by a distributor to a common carrier engaged in interstate or foreign passenger service or to a person authorized to sell tobacco products on the facilities of a common carrier. Whenever tobacco products are sold by distributors to common carriers engaged in interstate or foreign passenger service for use or sale on facilities of the carriers, or to persons authorized to sell tobacco products on those facilities, the tax imposed by this section may not be levied with respect to sales of the tobacco products by the distributors, but a tax is hereby levied upon the carriers or upon the persons authorized to sell tobacco products on the facilities of the carriers, as the case may be, for the privilege of making these sales in Oregon at the same rate that is imposed upon the distribution of tobacco products in this state. The common carriers and authorized persons shall pay the tax imposed by this section and file returns with the Department of Revenue as provided in ORS 323.510 (Dates for payment of tax).
