Or. Admin. R. 150-314-0152 - Requirement to File Returns Electronically

(1) All paid tax preparers filing Oregon personal income tax returns in this state are required to file them by electronic means if the paid tax preparer is required to do so by federal law. See 26 USC § 6011 and Treasury Regulation §301.6011-7 for the federal mandate and relevant definitions.
(2) Waivers.
(a) A waiver granted by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) pursuant to Treasury Regulation §301.6011-7(c)(1) or (2) will be accepted by the department as a waiver to the mandate under section (1). The paid preparer must notify the department in writing when such a waiver is granted in accordance with the department's instructions.
(b) In addition to a waiver allowed under subsection (a), the department may grant a waiver of the mandate in section (1) if the following conditions are met:
(A) The paid preparer requests a waiver in advance of the preparation of personal income tax returns subject to the mandate in accordance with the department's instructions; and
(B) The paid preparer's facts and circumstances are such that complying with the mandate would cause the paid preparer an undue financial hardship. The paid preparer's refusal to purchase or use the requisite software or computer equipment does not, in and of itself, satisfy the conditions for a waiver under this subsection.
(c) When circumstances warrant, the department may issue an administrative waiver of the mandate in section (1) to a paid preparer or group of paid preparers when the department determines it is necessary to promote the effective and efficient administration of the tax system.
(3) This rule is effective January 1, 2012 and applies to tax returns filed on or after that date.
