Welcome to the City of Oregon’s Tax Department!

Our aim is to communicate the tax requirements of residents, as well as employees and businesses that work within our city.

The City of Oregon’s income tax rate is 2.25%. Any businesses with employees working in the City of Oregon are required to withhold tax at this rate on all wages earned within the City. The businesses are also required to file an annual net profit return on income earned in the City of Oregon.

Any residents who work, whether in the city or outside of the city, are required to file an income tax return at the end of the year. Our rate is 2.25% on any income earned; however, we will give credit for taxes paid to other cities up to that city’s income tax rate, but no higher than 2.25%. This income includes salaries, wages, commissions, and net profits earned within the city.

Filing Guidelines


If the deadline to file cannot be met, an automatic extension will be granted if the taxpayer received an extension on his/her federal return. If an extension was not requested or received for federal purposes a taxpayer may still request an extension to file his/her city tax by sending a request to the Tax Commissioner by the original due date of the return. An extension of time to file is not an extension of time to pay. Payment of any estimated tax due should be sent in by the original due date of the return to avoid a late payment penalty. Although not required by state law, a courtesy copy of the extension by the due date of the return would be appreciated. A copy of the extension must be attached to the return when filed or the return will be considered late and a late filing penalty will be applied.

W-2 & W-3 filing:

The Oregon income tax office now allows employers to file their W-2's on diskette. The city requires the same information and format that is required by the federal government. Please use OREG as the local entity code.


We ask that you utilize your client’s pre-printed returns as it makes processing more accurate and efficient.  Forms are also located on our web page.  If you use a generic return, please make sure the filing year of the return, taxpayers’ names, social security numbers or alternate ID’s, phone number, address changes and dates moved in or out are on the return. Returns for part-year residents require pay stubs with year-to-date figures or a statement from your payroll department. Please remember Oregon city income tax returns are due April 15th or, if it falls on a weekend, the first business day after April 15th. Returns filed late will incur a $25.00 late filing fee, as well as monthly penalty (1 ½%) and interest (1/2%) charges. If credit is taken for tax paid to another city, you must include a copy of that city’s return.

NOTE: To assist in processing returns, please use minimal staples and one-sided copies.

Supporting Forms and Schedules:

Federal returns are required attachments to local returns. To avoid requests for missing information, individuals must include Federal 1040, Schedule 1, Schedules C, E (pages 1 and 2 if both apply), F, Farm Rental 4835, ordinary gains reflected on the 4797, as well as income reflected on Line 21 of the of the 1040 Schedule 1 (1099-MISC, Fiduciary fees, taxable portions of the HAS distributions, etc.) These documents assist in the verification of earned income and losses subject to local taxes. Supporting schedules may also be necessary in various cases. Please be sure to include the second page of Schedule C showing cost of labor included in cost of goods sold.

In addition to the applicable forms listed above, BUSINESSES need to include Form 1120/1120S/1065. If applicable to a specific business, Schedule K1, as well as Forms 4797 and 8825 need to be reported.


The due dates for estimated payments are:

April 15, July 31, October 31, January 31

If you have any questions, the tax office is open during regular business hours:
Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
