SALEM – New updates about the Pass-Through Entity Elective (PTE-E) tax are available on the Oregon Department of Revenue website, including additional frequently asked questions, step-by-step examples of how to file PTE-E returns, and schedules that make filing easier and faster.
In July 2021, Oregon established a Pass-Through Entity Elective (PTE-E) Tax, a business alternative income tax in response to the $10,000 cap on the federal State and Local Tax (SALT) deduction included in the 2017 federal Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
For tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2022, entities taxed as S corporations and partnerships may elect annually to be subject to the PTE-E tax at a rate of 9 percent tax on the first $250,000 of distributive proceeds and 9.9 percent tax on any amount exceeding $250,000.
The department’s latest web updates answer the most common questions from tax preparers, who are starting to file PTE-E returns as the tax filing season begins.
The department provides an Excel spreadsheet that can be used to speed up filing of the OR-21. The data on the spreadsheet will populate to the OR-21-MD and the OR-21-MD-PT forms used in PTE-E tax filing.
