2. AUTOMATIC ADOPTION, FEDERAL INCOME TAX AMENDMENTS - Purpose: To simply preparation of income tax returns, the 1969 Oregon Legislature passed a law which provides that the Oregon income tax will be computed by a method closely corresponding to the federal income tax. This Constitutional Amendment provides that when U.S. Congress changes method of computation, the changes are automatically adopted into Oregon law. The Oregon Legislature, however, must review such changes when it meets in regular session and may modify or reject them.
