Tax credits placed for public bid

As an incentive for completing energy efficiency upgrades the Oregon Department of Energy has issued the Hood River Valley Parks and Recreation District a tax credit of $15,012.

As government entity, the Parks District does not pay taxes so the ODOE allows the agency to sell the incentive to a business or individual that does pay taxes for a minimum of 67 cents on the dollar.

This means the Parks District can sell its tax certificate good for $15,012 ($3,002 per year for five years) for a minimum bid of $10,066.08 (paid all at once) to a business or individual.

The Parks District will be accepting sealed bids until 2 p.m. Feb.7.

Bids may be dropped off or mailed to the Hood River Valley Parks and Recreation office, located at the Hood River Aquatic Center, 1601 May St., Hood River, OR 97031. Bids will be opened at that address at 2:15 p.m. Feb. 7.
