The Oregon Legislature voted and passed a tax bill in February in response to the federal tax reform enacted in December 2017.
In planning for 2018 taxes, the following are a few of the key Oregon provisions to take into consideration:
- Addition of Oregon tax credit for certified contributions to the Oregon Opportunity Grant Fund.
- Oregon disconnected from federal tax law that allows specified pass-through entities a deduction of up to 20% of qualified pass-through business income on the federal return. As a result, the amount will be an addition to taxable income on Oregon tax returns.
- Oregon Pass-Through Entity reduced rates:
- For 2018, an addition of sole proprietorships for eligibility of preferential tax rates on business income.
- Limits preferential tax rates available to sole proprietorships and nonpassive income of partnerships or S corporations to first $250,000 of qualified taxable income.
- Limits use of preferential rates to businesses not classified in certain North American Industry Classification System industries.
- For tax years 2018 – 2025, increases Oregon personal exemption credit from $90 to $113.
As you are planning for 2018, it is important to include changes from both federal and Oregon tax laws to ensure you are effectively optimizing your cash flow and minimizing your tax liabilities.

On July 1, 2018, employers must start withholding the tax (one-tenth of 1 percent or .001) from the wages of both Oregon residents (regardless of where the work is performed) and Nonresidents who perform services in Oregon.
To our employees:
As of July 1st 2018, Oregon will begin collecting a new tax called the Statewide Transit Tax (STT). This tax is paid by the employee and withheld from the paychecks of all working Oregon residents and from any non-residents who work in Oregon.
Beginning paychecks issued in July, we will withhold 1/10 of one percent (.001) of your gross taxable wages and deposit this to the Oregon Department of Revenue. This amount withheld will appear on each paystub and the total annual withholding will be reported on your W2 each year, just like your State Income Withholding Tax.
