The Oregon Tax Court consists of two divisions: the Magistrate Division and the Regular Division. The judge of the Oregon Tax Court appoints a presiding magistrate and one or more other magistrates to serve in the Magistrate Division.

 

Trials in the Magistrate Division are informal proceedings. Statutory rules of evidence do not apply, and the trials are not reported. The proceedings may be conducted by telephone or in person. A taxpayer may be represented by a lawyer, public accountant, real estate broker or appraiser.

 

The filing fee is $240. All decisions of the magistrates may be appealed to the Regular Division of the Oregon Tax Court.

 

Regular Division
Appeals from the Magistrate Division are made directly to the Regular Division of the Oregon Tax Court. The judge of the Oregon Tax Court presides over trials in the Regular Division. The Regular Division is comparable to a circuit court and exercises equivalent powers. All trials are before the judge only (no jury) and are reported. The parties may either represent themselves or be represented by an attorney. Appeals from the judge’s decision are made directly to the Oregon Supreme Court. The filing fee is $240.


The judge serves a six-year term and is elected on the statewide, nonpartisan judicial ballot.
