Or. Admin. R. 150-118-0040 - Deductions Allowed on Either the Inheritance Tax Return or the Fiduciary Income Tax Return

Current through Register Vol. 61, No. 4, April 1, 2022

This rule applies to estates of decedents who die before January 1, 2012. Deductions allowed under sections 2053 or 2054 of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) may be claimed on either the Oregon inheritance tax return (Form IT-1) or the Oregon fiduciary income tax return (Form 41), but not both. The personal representative of an estate may make different elections for federal and Oregon returns. If the deductions are claimed on the Oregon Form 41, attach a statement that the deductions are not being claimed on the Oregon Form IT-1. For federal purposes, those deductions may be taken on either the federal estate tax return (Form 706) or the federal estate income tax return (Form 1041) under IRC 642(g).

Example 1: Peter dies in 2004 with a gross estate of $900,000. The personal representative of the estate elects to deduct $19,500 of expenses on the federal Form 1041. For Oregon, the personal representative elects to take the deduction on the Oregon Form IT-1. The amount deducted on the federal Form 1041 must be added back to income on the Oregon Form 41.
Example 2: Sally dies in 2004 with a gross estate of $950,000. The personal representative of the estate elects to deduct $10,000 of expenses on the federal Form 1041. The personal representative does not claim these deductions on the Oregon Form IT-1. The deductions claimed on the federal Form 1041 flow through to the Oregon Form 41. No modification to income is required.
Example 3: Mildred dies in 2004 with a gross estate of $2,000,000. The personal representative of the estate elects to claim a deduction of $15,000 on the federal Form 706. For Oregon, the personal representative elects to claim the deduction on the Oregon Form 41. The election is made by subtracting the deduction from the Oregon return. The deduction is not allowed on the Oregon Form IT-1 if it was claimed on the Oregon Form 41. The personal representative must reduce the deductions by $15,000 on the Oregon Form IT-1.
