The Oregon Department of Revenue is conducting an auction with the Oregon Department of Energy for 4,065 increments of $500 tax credit certificates. The auction runs from October 13-22, 2014, and contributions go to the Alternative Fuel Vehicle Fund.
Businesses and individuals with an Oregon income tax liability may bid on the certificates. The credit can be claimed on your 2014 tax return. Any amount that cannot be used on your 2014 tax return can be carried forward for up to three years. You can't transfer the credits to anyone else.
Online bidding begins at 9 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) on October 13, 2014. It ends at 5 p.m. PDT, on October 22, 2014. We won't accept any bids before or after that time. Payments must be received in a Department of Revenue office by 5 p.m. PDT, October 29, 2014.
