Other credits. You may qualify for other nonrefundable credits listed on this page. Please identify the credit using the numeric code. If you have only one “Other credit,” enter the numeric code on line 39x and the amount on lines 39y and 39. For example, if you’re claiming a $45 residential energy credit, enter “729” on line 39x and “$45” on lines 39y and 39. If you’re claiming more than one “Other credit,” do not enter a code or amount on line 39x or 39y. Instead, check box 39z and include Schedule OR-ASC with your return with the numeric codes and amounts of the credits. Enter the total from Schedule OR-ASC on Form 40, line 39.
- Child and dependent care carryforward [code 704].
To qualify, your net income tax on last year’s Oregon return must have been zero. Enter the amount of unused credit from a prior year. Do not include prior year child care expenses. The prior year carryforward plus your current year’s credit can’t be more than your Oregon tax liability on Form 40, line 41. You can carry forward any excess credit from line 35 over the next five years. If the carryforward isn’t used within five years, it’s lost.
- Long-term care insurance premiums [code 716].
You’re allowed a long-term care insurance premiums credit if:
— Your policy was issued in 2000 or later, and
— You, your parents, or your dependents are the policy beneficiaries, and
— You paid premiums for 2013.
The credit for single and joint filers is the smaller of 15 percent of the premiums paid or $500. If you’re married/RDP filing separately, the combined credits on the spouses’/RDPs’ returns can’t be more than the credit they would have been allowed on a joint return.
Any federal benefit due to a federal deduction for the premiums must be reported as an Oregon addition. See page 13.
Employers paying for long-term care insurance for employees may also claim this credit.
- Oregon Cultural Trust [code 722].
If you donate to an Oregon nonprofit cultural organization during the tax year and you donate a matching amount to the Oregon Cultural Trust, you can claim a tax credit. You can claim a tax credit of up to $500 per taxpayer ($1,000 on a joint return) for the amount you contributed to the Oregon Cultural Trust. Any federal benefit due to a federal deduction must be reported as an Oregon addition. For more information about the Oregon Cultural Trust, go to www.culturaltrust.org.
