The Pendleton School District would like to inform parents of students with disabilities that they may be eligible for a tax exemption in the Oregon Tax Code.

A child qualifies if he or she meets all of the following criteria:

  • Qualifies as your dependent for tax year 2017;
  • Is eligible for early intervention services, early childhood special education services or receives special education as defined by the State Board of Education of the state where the child attends school; and
  • Is considered to have a disability as of December 31, 2017 under the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and related Oregon laws.
