Or. Admin. R. 150-317-0310 - Bad Debt Reserve of Financial Institutions Not Qualifying as Large Banks that Have Differences in Reserve for Federal and Oregon Tax Purposes

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

(1) For tax years beginning on or after January 1, 1987, Oregon has adopted the federal provisions for treatment of bad debts of financial institutions provided in Sections 585(a) and 585(b) of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC). These provisions apply to financial institutions not considered large banks, as defined in IRC 585(c)(2).
(2) For Oregon tax purposes, the allowable addition to the reserve for bad debts shall be computed using the method provided in IRC 585(b), starting with the ending balance in the bad debt reserve calculated for Oregon tax purposes for the 1986 tax year.
(a) For 1987 tax years, the federal law provides that the addition to reserve for bad debts shall be the greater of the amounts computed using the percentage method in IRC 585(b)(2) or the experience method in IRC 585(b)(3), as revised in 1986.
(b) For tax years beginning on or after January 1, 1988, federal law provides that the addition to reserve for bad debts shall be no greater than the amount computed using the experience method in IRC 585(b)(2).
(c) An Oregon addition modification shall be made if the federal addition exceeds the Oregon addition to the reserve for bad debts for the tax year. An Oregon subtraction modification shall be made if the Oregon addition exceeds the federal addition to the reserve for bad debts for the tax year.

Example: Small Bank, Inc., must calculate its 1991 addition to its reserve for bad debts based on the following information:

Base Year-1987

Federal reserve balance, 12/31/87-$600

Oregon reserve balance, 12/31/87-$400

Bad debts charged against Oregon and federal reserves during 1991-$500

Federal reserve balance, 12/31/91-$300

Oregon reserve balance, 12/31/91-$200

Total bad debts, after recoveries, sustained in current and 5 preceding years-$2,500

Outstanding loans, 12/31/87-$150,000

Outstanding loans, 12/31/91-$180,000

Sum of loans outstanding at end of current and 5 preceding years-$960,000

Using the experience method, the addition to the reserves for bad debts for 1991 is computed as follows:

The addition to reserve for bad debts is the amount necessary to increase the balance of the reserve (at the close of the current year) to the greater of: [Table not included. See ED. NOTE.]
