New resources to help business taxpayers and tax professionals understand and comply with Oregon’s new Corporate Activity Tax (CAT) have been added to the Department of Revenue’s website.
In October, the CAT policy staff hosted a pair of live video conference training sessions. The PowerPoint presentation used in the training sessions is available on the CAT page of the agency’s website.
In addition, questions submitted via email by participants in the two training sessions and answers provided by the CAT policy staff have been posted under the CAT training materials header. Questions and answers are divided by topic to make it easier for taxpayers to find the information they need.
In the coming weeks, a series of short, subject-specific training videos will also be added to the website.
Other information on the CAT page of the Department of Revenue’s website includes:
- A list of frequently asked questions.
- High-level summaries of the rules and other topics to help with taxpayer compliance.
- A registration training PowerPoint presentation.
- A PowerPoint presentation to help with making payments.
- A link to the CAT administrative rules.
- A link to the statutes governing the CAT.
The page also includes an opportunity to subscribe to email updates about the CAT.
Taxpayers with general questions about the CAT can email email@example.com or call 503-945-8005.
