The State of Oregon’s Public Records Law (ORS 192.410 et seq.) applies to residential tax credit applications submitted to the Department of Energy. The law says every person has a right to inspect any public record of a public body, subject to certain exceptions. Examples of documents not available to the public would be trade secrets, criminal investigations or archaeological sites.
If asked, the Department of Energy, by law, must release the name, address and telephone number of a person who has submitted a residential tax credit application. However, a state agency can withhold an address, email address, and phone number following a written request explaining personal safety and privacy concerns, such as a temporary restraining order.
The Oregon Department of Energy does not endorse any company obtaining the information.
The Oregon Department of Energy does not sell applicant information as a mailing list.
