HB 2840 : Tax credits for firearm background check fees and associated travel

Creates credit against personal income tax for cost of criminal history record check required by state law for transfer of firearm.
Creates subtraction from taxable income for mileage for travel associated with criminal history record check. Applies to tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2017, and before January 1, 2027. Takes effect on 91st day following adjournment sine die.

HB 2840 could set an interesting precedent for tax credits. Will Oregonians receive credits for Vehicle Emissions Tests at DEQ? For travel to and from the DEQ?
