Charitable Activities Section, Oregon Department of Justice
2019 Form CT-12 Instructions
General
Instructions
Purpose
Oregon law charges the Attorney General with
the duty and responsibility to represent the
public’s interest in charitable organizations and
assets held or received for charitable purposes.
The Attorney General carries out this
responsibility by requiring charitable
organizations to register and file periodic
financial reports.
Once submitted, this Form and all attachments
become a part of the public record. Any
interested person may examine or obtain a copy
of an annual report of a charitable organization
by contacting the Charitable Activities Section.
Reports can also be viewed on our website at
https://justice.oregon.gov/Charities.
Who Must File
All organizations registered with the Charitable
Activities Section of the Oregon Department of
Justice must annually file Form CT-12, CT-12F,
or CT-12S unless the Attorney General has
specifically exempted the organization from the
reporting requirements.
What Form to File
File Form CT-12 if the organization is
incorporated, organized, or headquartered in
Oregon.
File Form CT-12F if the organization is based
or headquartered outside of Oregon. The
Charitable Activities Section does not accept
multi-state annual report forms in lieu of a
completed Form CT-12F.
File Form CT-12S if the organization is a split-
interest trust that holds assets for the benefit of
both charitable and non-charitable beneficiaries.
If the organization does not fit within any of the
above categories, file Form CT-12.
The Form year should match the starting
year of the fiscal period covered by the
report.
Due Date
The Form, all required attachments and
schedules, and payment of fees are due in the
Charitable Activities Section’s office no later
than 4 months and 15 days after the end of the
organization’s fiscal year. If the due date falls on
a weekend or legal holiday, the due date is the
next business day.
The Charitable Activities Section does not use
the postmark date to determine whether an
organization has filed timely. Instead, filings are
considered timely if they are physically received
within 5 business days after the due date. All
filings received more than 5 business days after
the due date will be assessed a late charge. See
Instruction 15 Late Fees.
Extensions for Filing
An organization may apply for an extension of
time to file. Extension requests must be received
on or before the due date of the report to avoid a
late fee. The maximum available extension
period is 180 days. An extension to file is also
an extension to pay any associated fees.
Therefore, estimated payments should not be
included with extension requests.
Please do not submit an incomplete CT-12/CT-
12F/CT-12S if you intend to later supplement or
amend your report with a copy of your IRS
return. Instead, file an extension request so that
you can submit a complete report by the
extended due date with a copy of the appropriate
IRS form attached.
Extensions may be requested through the
Department of Justice website at
https://justice.oregon.gov/Charities/Extensions.
Follow the instructions carefully to ensure that
we receive your request. Please contact our
office if you have any questions or difficulties
with your online request.
You should print and retain a copy of the online
Confirmation of Extension Request. You should
also expect to receive a confirmation of receipt
of your online request.
You may also submit a written request or a copy
of the organization’s federal extension request
(IRS Form 8868) so long as the Charitable
Activities Section receives the request or copy
before the due date of the report. The
organization’s 4 or 5-digit registration number
should be noted on the top of all extension
requests. If you would like acknowledgement
that your extension request has been received,
you should enclose an additional copy of the
request and a self-addressed, stamped envelope.
In the event your request is denied, to avoid a
late fee, the annual report must be submitted by
the later of the due date or within 10 days after
the organization receives notice of denial of the
requested extension.
Important NoteAn extension request filed
with the IRS or the Oregon Department of
Revenue does NOT act as an extension with
the Charitable Activities Section unless a copy
is submitted to the Charitable Activities
Section by the due date.
Record Keeping
Please retain a copy of this report and all
supporting documentation for at least five years
after the due date.
Rounding and Blank Lines
Round all amounts on the report to the nearest
whole dollar. Drop amounts under 50 cents and
increase amounts from 50 to 99 cents to the next
whole dollar. If the amount is zero write “$0.”
and attach an explanation if requested.
Do not leave any line blank. Your report may
be treated as incomplete if you leave blank lines.
Important Reminders
Don’t lose your tax-exempt status. Most tax-
exempt organizations other than churches must
file a yearly return with the IRS. Very small
organizations are required to file IRS Form 990-
N, also known as the e-Postcard. The IRS is
required by law to revoke the tax-exempt status
of any organization that has failed to file a
required return for three consecutive years.
Please refer to https://www.irs.gov/charities-and-
nonprofits for more information about these
requirements.
.
Important information regarding Social
Security numbers (SSNs) Forms submitted
to this office become a public record. In
order to protect the privacy of named
individuals, you should redact any SSNs (if
used) from copies of any IRS forms
submitted. Although we endeavor to redact
SSNs from any forms we receive, we request
your assistance in safeguarding this
information by not including it in your
submission.

solicitations in Oregon, including in-person,
direct mail, advertising, vending machine,
telephone, or other solicitations made in Oregon.

charitable solicitation, administration,
management, or fiduciary practices. This
includes assurances of voluntary compliance or
discontinuance involving the organization or any
other proceeding in which the organization or
any current officer, director, trustee, or key
employee is subject to any injunction, order, or
pending action relating to the solicitation of
contributions, or administration of charitable
assets. Attach a written explanation of each
such action or agreement, including the

holding assets or conducting charitable activities
in Oregon, there are similar notification
requirements.
If the organization is a trust and is filing a final
report for any reason, the Charitable Activities
Section should be contacted for specific
instructions and requirements related to closing

8. Officers, Directors,
Trustees, and Other Key
Employees
List each person who was an officer, director,

organization at any time during the year even if
they are a volunteer and do not receive any
compensation from the organization. Give the
daytime phone number and preferred mailing
address at which officers, etc., want the
Charitable Activities Section to contact them.
Use an attachment if there are more persons to
list than there are lines available.
A failure to fully complete this part can subject
the organization to late fees or civil penalties for
filing an incomplete Form.
If the organization is an Oregon public benefit
corporation, it must have a minimum of three
individuals serving on its board of directors.
Officers include those officers required by
applicable state law, such as president, secretary,
or treasurer, and also includes the person(s)
elected or appointed to implement the decisions
of the governing body or for supervising the
management, administration, or operation of the
organization, regardless of title or the amount of
compensation received. The CEO or Executive
Director is an officer for purposes of this form.
The top financial official may also be an officer
if they are responsible for managing the
organization’s finances.
A "key employee" is any person, other than an
officer, director, or trustee, who has
responsibilities over the organization that are
similar to those of its officers, directors, or
trustees. If the organization attaches a 990 or
990EZ, it may rely on the IRS definition of key
employee in the corresponding IRS instructions
for purposes of this form.
Column (C)
If an IRS form is attached that includes complete
and accurate compensation information, the
phrase “See IRS Form” may be entered in lieu of
completing this section.
Otherwise, for each person listed, report the total
amount of compensation paid or deferred for
payment to a later date, including salary, fees,
bonuses, benefits, taxable allowances or
reimbursements, the value of noncash
compensation, and severance payments.
Enter a zero in column (C) if the person was a
volunteer and was not paid or did not accrue any
compensation during the reporting year.
The organization may provide an attachment to
explain the entire compensation package for any
person listed in this part, including whether the
compensation includes the payment of amounts
previously deferred.
Section II.
9. Total Revenue
The Charitable Activities Section has adopted
the definition for “Total Revenue” used by the
Internal Revenue Service. If the organization
completed one of the following IRS Forms for
this reporting period, the Total Revenue figure
should come from the line number listed:
IRS Form 990, Part I, line 12 (current
year)
IRS Form 990-EZ, Part I, line 9
IRS Form 990-PF, Part I, line 12a
IRS Form 1041, line 9
If the organization was not required to complete
one of these IRS Forms, or filed an IRS Form
990-N, a summary of what constitutes Total
Revenue is provided within these instructions. A
more detailed definition can be found in the IRS
instructions for the forms listed above.
“Total Revenue” includes such items as:
Contributions, gifts, or grants
donated real property
donated thrift items
membership dues & assessments
program service revenue
government fees & contracts
interest or dividend income
gross rental income less rental expense
other investment income
gain or loss on sales of assets other than
inventory
gain or loss from special events &
activities which may include bingo,
raffles, and Monte Carlo events
gain or loss on sale of inventory
all other sources of revenue.
include amounts obtained from both
Oregon and out of state sources.
To report contributions received in a form other
than cash, use the market value as of the date of
the contribution. When market value cannot be
readily determined, use an appraised or
estimated value.
To determine the amount of any noncash
contribution that is subject to an outstanding
debt, subtract the debt from the property’s fair
market value in assigning a value to the revenue
received. “Fair market value” is the amount a
reasonable person would pay for the item at the
time it was donated to the organization.
Important NoteDo not include the value of
services donated to the organization, or items
such as the free use of materials, equipment, or
facilities in reporting Total Revenue.
Important NoteIf Total Revenue is zero,
attach an explanation of why Total Revenue is
zero and indicate whether the organization plans
to continue operations. See the instructions for
line 6 if this is the organization’s final report.
10. Revenue Fee
Use the Total Revenue figure from line 9 to
calculate the revenue fee according to the
following schedule.
Revenue Fee Schedule

The maximum amount subject to a revenue fee is
$1,000,000. The maximum revenue fee is $400.
The minimum revenue fee is $20, even if total
revenue is zero or a negative amount.
11. Net Assets or Fund
Balances at the End of the
Reporting Period
The Charitable Activities Section has adopted
the definitions for “Net Assets” and “Fund
Balances” used by the Internal Revenue Service.
If the organization completed one of the
following IRS forms for this reporting period,
the Net Assets or Fund Balances figure should
come from the line number listed:
IRS Form 990, Part I, line 22 (end of
year)
IRS Form 990-EZ, Part I, line 21
IRS Form 990-PF, Part III, line 6
If the organization was not required to complete
one of these IRS forms, or filed an IRS Form
900-N, a summary of what constitutes Net
Assets or Fund Balances is provided below. A
more detailed definition can be found in the IRS
instructions for the forms listed above.
Net Assets and Fund Balances refer to the
organization’s assets minus liabilities.
“Assets” are items of value to the organization,
such as cash, receivables less any allowance for
doubtful accounts, inventory, prepaid expenses,
investments, land, buildings & equipment less
any accumulated depreciation if the organization
records depreciation.
“Liabilities” are the amount of debts and
obligations owed by the organization, such as
accounts payable, accrued expenses, deferred
revenue, loans, and mortgages.
12. Net Fixed Assets Used to
Conduct Charitable Activities
Enter the amount of the organization’s Net Fixed
Assets that were held for use in the operation of
charitable activities at the end of the reporting
period.
Important NoteYou should not include any
cash, bank accounts, stock holdings,
investment accounts, or other liquid assets in
Line 12. Line 12 should only include fixed
assets that are used for charitable purposes, such
as land, buildings, or equipment.
The following instructions provide guidance on
how to calculate Net Fixed Assets, where the
amount may be located on the organization’s
IRS return, and whether that amount should be
adjusted to include only those fixed assets used
for charitable purposes.
The Charitable Activities Section defines “Net
Fixed Assets” as the organization’s book value
(cost or other basis less any accumulated
depreciation) of all owned land, buildings, or
equipment, that are used directly for
charitable purposes. For example, if the
charity owns and operates a museum, the
building that houses the museum is a net fixed
asset. However, undeveloped land, a building
owned and used for rental income, or any other
fixed asset used for investment purposes should
not be included in Line 12. Accordingly, the net
fixed assets used for charitable purposes on Line
12 may be less than the organization’s total net
fixed assets.
If the organization completed one of the
following IRS Forms for this reporting period
and all its Net Fixed Assets are held for use in
conducting charitable activities, the figure
should come from the line number listed:
IRS Form 990, Part X, line 10c
IRS Form 990-EZ, Part II, line 23B
IRS Form 990-PF, Part II, line 14b
If the organization was not required to complete
one of these IRS Forms, or filed an IRS Form
990-N, this figure will need to be calculated
from the organization’s accounting records, but
the 990/990EZ can be used as worksheets to
determine the amount to report.
13. Amount Subject to Net
Assets or Fund Balances Fee
Subtract line 12 from line 11. If the result is less
than $50,000 enter $0 on line 13. If the result is
more than $20,000,000 enter $20,000,000.
Example #1
line 11
$ 100,000
line 12
(25,000)

Important NoteIf the organization is filing a
short report of less than one year due to a change
in accounting periods, the amount entered on
line 13 should be prorated by the number of
months covered by the report. To determine the
prorated amount, divide the amount determined
above by 12 and multiply by the number of
months covered by the short report. No similar
proration should be made if the short report is
due to the initial or final reporting period.
14. Net Assets or Fund
Balances Fee
Multiply the amount subject to a Net Assets or
Fund Balances fee from line 13 by .0001 and
enter this figure on line 14. Round to the nearest
whole dollar. If the result is less than $5 enter
$0. If the amount is more than $2,000 enter
$2,000.
15. Late Fees
If the report is not filed or the fee is not paid by
the due date (or the extended due date), an initial
late fee of $20 will be due. If the report or
payment remains outstanding more than 13
months past the end of the fiscal year covered by
the report, the late fee will increase to $50. If
the delinquency is not corrected within 16
months of the end of the fiscal year covered by
the report, the late fee increases to $100.

Charitable Activities Section
Oregon Department of Justice
100 SW Market Street
Portland, Oregon 97201-5702
Important NoteIndicate on the check the
organization’s 4 or 5-digit Oregon Department
of Justice registration number. The registration
number is located on line 1 of the preprinted
Form CT-12 or can be obtained by contacting
the Charitable Activities Section or looking up
the charity on our website at
https://justice.oregon.gov/Charities.
17. IRS Forms, Schedules,
and Attachments
All organizations must attach a complete copy
of all forms, supporting schedules, and
attachments filed with the IRS, except
publicly-supported charities are not required
to attach Schedule B, Listing of Contributors.
Even if your organization is not required to file a
Form 990, 990-EZ, or 990-PF with the IRS, if
the organization’s revenues or net assets exceed
certain thresholds, it may be required to
complete one of these forms for Oregon
purposes to meet the Charitable Activities
Section’s filing requirements.
In general, if your organization’s total revenues
are at least $50,000, or its assets are more than
$100,000, you may be asked to complete a 990-
EZ or 990 for Oregon purposes only. If the
organization has not filed the form with the IRS,
it should note on the form that it is for Oregon
purposes only.
Additional instructions are provided below for
990-N filers and for organizations that do not file
any type of 990 with the IRS.
For 990-N FilersIf your organization does
not complete an IRS Form 990 or 990-EZ
because it files an IRS form 990-N, the
Charitable Activities Section will consider
suspending the requirement to file a Form 990 or
990-EZ for Oregon purposes upon request.
If the organization files an IRS Form 990-N
because its gross receipts are normally $50,000
or less, but its assets are more than $100,000,
please contact this office in writing if you would
like the Charitable Activities Section to consider
suspending the requirement to file an IRS Form
990 or 990-EZ for Oregon purposes. The
amount of assets in excess of $100,000 is
material to consideration of suspension requests.
Please include a balance sheet or similar
statement listing your assets to expedite review
of your request.
For organizations that do not file a
990/990EZ/990-N with the IRS. Please
attach to your CT-12 a copy of your Form 1120
or other return your organization has filed with
the IRS for the reporting period. We will contact
you if this office determines that a 990-EZ or
990 is required for Oregon purposes.
Important Note—Organizations that file Form
990 or 990-EZ with the IRS are not required to
attach any schedule of contributors to filings
with the Charitable Activities Section.
Therefore, there is no requirement to attach
Schedule B. However, if voluntarily submitted,
this information may be made available for
public inspection.
This exclusion does not apply to Form 990-PF
filers who must submit their schedule of
contributors.

information by not including it in your
submission.
