New Statewide Transit Tax

New Statewide Transit tax

As a result of the 2017 legislative session, effective July 1, 2018, all employers in Oregon are required to withhold, report and remit one-tenth of one percent (.001%) of wages paid to their employees to the Department of Revenue. The term “employee” is defined as those who are residents and those non-residents performing services within Oregon.

The Department of Revenue will automatically set up a “statewide transit tax account” in Revenue Online. This will appear to all employers prior to the end of the 3rd quarter of the 2018 tax year.
