In 2017, the Oregon State legislature passed House Bill (HB) 2066. This bill moves a portion of the Biomass Collector or Producer Tax Credit program from the Oregon Department of Energy to the Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA).
Bovine Manure Tax Credit (Sections 6 through 11 of HB 2066) requires ODA to administer tax credit certifications to qualified bovine manure producers or collectors that produce biofuels in Oregon beginning January 1, 2018.
Rules Advisory Committee
ODA is currently developing rules for the Bovine Manure Tax Credit with the help of a rules advisory committee (RAC). If you would like to participate in this rulemaking, please contact Kathryn Walker.
