7.02.020 Conformity to State Income Tax Laws.

The Business License Law is construed in conformity with the laws and regulations of the State of Oregon imposing taxes on or measured by net income.  Any reference in this Chapter to the laws of the State of Oregon means the laws of the State of Oregon imposing taxes on or measured by net income as those laws existed for that particular tax year. The Bureau has the authority by written policy to connect to and/or disconnect from any legislative enactment that deals with income or excise taxation or the definition of net income.  Should a question arise under the Business License Law on which this Chapter is silent, the Bureau may look to the laws of the State of Oregon for guidance in resolving the question, provided that the determination under State law is not in conflict with any provision of this Chapter or the State law is otherwise inapplicable.
