We have written at length about Oregon’s new Corporate Activity Tax (the “CAT”). As discussed in our last post, the Oregon Department of Revenue (the “Department”) recently concluded a series of 12 town hall meetings around the state to solicit input from stakeholders regarding the Department’s rulemaking process.
As we talked about in our last post, the Department stated at the Portland town hall meeting its plan to conduct additional dial-in meetings for people who are located out of state or who otherwise could not attend the town hall meetings.
On October 21st, 2019, the Department announced by email that it will host a conference call this Friday, October 25, 2019, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific Time.
Those who wish to participate in this conference call must RSVP to get a call-in number and access code. As of the time of this post, the only way to RSVP is by replying to the email the Department sent to the CAT email list. We have linked a copy of that email to this post.
If you wish to participate, you may do so by emailing the Department at: CATTAX.QUESTIONS@oregon.gov. Please include in the subject line: “Oregon Businesses Invited to Join Conference Call on Corporate Activity Tax Rules.” In the body of the email, please include the following statement: “I wish to RSVP for the CAT conference call.”
If you have not done so already, we encourage you to sign up to be on the Department’s CAT mailing list. We also encourage you to email any questions, concerns, or specific fact patterns to the Department for its consideration in the rulemaking process.
We will continue to post updates as we learn more. Stay tuned!
