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:

People come to Accountants Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
