Oregon Office of Rural Health

Temporary Tax Year 2020 Waiver for the Oregon Rural Practitioner Tax Credit

The Oregon Office of Rural Health is issuing a temporary waiver for otherwise eligible practitioners who become active staff or on contract to provide services with an ineligible hospital because of COVID-19. This waiver will be in effect as long as the Governor of Oregon’s emergency declaration is in effect.

A list of these 5 ineligible hospitals is here (Type B, referenced by a + symbol).

This waiver covers those practitioners whose practices outside of the hospital are deemed eligible. This waiver does not include practitioners who are already on active staff or contract with an ineligible hospital.

As this concerns medical practices within tax year 2020, it only applies to tax year 2020. It does not apply to any other tax years.

If you have questions about your practice and how this waiver applies, please contact Eric Jordan | jordane@ohsu.edu
