Welcome to the Oregon Tax Court
The Oregon Tax Court has exclusive jurisdiction to hear tax appeals under state laws, including personal income tax, property tax, corporation excise tax, timber tax, local budget law, and property tax limitations. The Court has two divisions: the Magistrate Division and the Regular Division.
With a few exceptions, appeals to the Tax Court are first filed in and heard by the Magistrate Division. The decision of the Magistrate can be appealed to the Regular Division.
The Oregon Tax Court is housed in The Robertson Building, which was completed in 1996. The Magistrate Division is located on floor 3R and the Regular Division on floor 4R. Both divisions have secure entries. In-person hearings are usually held on floor 4R in the Oregon Tax Court courtroom or in the Jill A. Tanner Mediation Center.
