Oregon Estimated Tax Requirements

I've researched it at the OR Dept of Rev.....but have a wee bit of uncertainty.

CAN you base the current year estimates on 100/110% of the prior year?

The scenario is that I have a client with zero prior year Oregon liability (non- resident return) yet for 2018 his liability will be very large due to a $ 1.3 million capital gain.  

My uncertainty arises because CA has this little *gotcha* whereby, if the income is over $ 1 million, you can't use the prior year as a safe harbor.  

I just need a little hand-holding to make sure Oregon doesn't have the same gotcha & I haven't found it yet.  (I have a bad cold...and my head hurts...and I can't think clearly....)

TIA - I'm hoping one of you knows off the top o' your head; don't do any research :smile:

Based on my vast experience of never doing an Oregon return, I'm thinking you might not be safe with the zero based on the instructions to the underestimate penalty form since you are dealing with a nonresident.

Exception 2—Prior year.

You meet this exception if all of the following are true:

  1. You were a full-year Oregon resident in 2017; and
  2. Your net income tax for 2017 was -0- or you weren’t required to file a return for 2017; and
  3. Your tax year was a full 12 months.
