On October 13, 2020, the Oregon Department of Revenue (“DOR”) issued a temporary administrative order amending OAR 150-305-0460 to allow paper returns, statements, or documents to be signed through a facsimile method.  A facsimile signature is a signature visibly affixed to a paper return using electronic or mechanical equipment or an electronic or mechanical device.  

The DOR issued this amendment because the COVID-19 pandemic has made it more difficult for paper returns, statements, and documents prepared by practitioners to be hand signed by taxpayers. Accordingly, under OAR 150-305-0460, taxpayers may use the facsimile method to sign personal income tax returns and corporate income tax returns due on October 15, 2020, and November 15, 2020, respectively. 

DISCLAIMER: Because of the generality of this update, the information provided herein may not be applicable in all situations and should not be acted upon without specific legal advice based on particular situations.
