Or. Admin. R. 150-307-0150 - Parsonage and Caretaker Residence Exemption Guidelines

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

(1) A parsonage or caretaker residence is considered primarily a residence even though incidental religious use may occur there. A parsonage or caretaker's residence is totally taxable unless it meets the criteria established in OAR 150-307-0140.
(2) The following are examples of activities which do not qualify the residence for an exemption:
(a) Living close to the house of worship to deter vandalism;
(b) Opening and closing the house of worship daily;
(c) Living close to the house of worship for the sake of convenience; or
(d) Required living quarters for caretaker or pastor's family which do not meet conditions in OAR 150-307-0140.
(3) Notwithstanding subsection (2), a parsonage or caretaker residence may qualify for the affordable housing exemption under ORS 307.140(4) if it meets all requirements of that statute and ORS 307.162.
