In 2017, the Oregon State legislature passed House Bill (HB) 2066. This bill moved a portion of the Biomass Collector or Producer Tax Credit program from the Oregon Department of Energy to the Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA).
A bovine manure tax credit (Sections 6 to 11 of HB 2066) requires ODA to administer tax credit certifications to qualified bovine manure producers or collectors that produce biofuels in Oregon.
ODA is currently accepting applications for the 2020 calendar year. Applications can be filed with ODA on a quarterly basis. Application dues dates are as follows:
- First quarter (1/1 - 3/31): Due May 31, 2020
- Second quarter (4/1 - 6/30): Due August 30, 2020
- Third quarter (7/1 - 9/30): Due November 29, 2020
- Fourth quarter (10/1 - 12/31): Due February 28, 2021
