The Oregon Income Tax

Oregon collects a state income tax at a maximum marginal tax rate of %, spread across tax brackets. Like the Federal Income Tax, Oregon's income tax allows couples filing jointly to pay a lower overall rate on their combined income with wider tax brackets for joint filers.

Oregon's maximum marginal income tax rate is the 1st highest in the United States, ranking directly below Oregon's %. You can learn more about how the Oregon income tax compares to other states' income taxes by visiting our map of income taxes by state.

Oregon's high income taxes are partially due to the fact that Oregon has no state sales tax. Tax brackets for earnings under under $125,000 are indexed for inflation and adjusted yearly, while tax brackets over $125,000 are only changed explicitly by statute. To help offset high state income taxes, Oregon taxpayers can deduct up to $6,100 of Federal income tax from their Oregon taxable income.

Residents who claim the Earned Income Tax Credit on their federal tax returns can also qualify for the Oregon EITC. The Oregon EITC is 6% of your federal credit, with a minimum credit of $24. Low-income Oregon taxpayers may qualify for free legal or tax help though Oregon DOR recognized charities. To see if you qualify, you can call Legal Aid Services of Oregon at 1-888-610-8764.

Owed tax not paid by the April 15th due-date is subject to an immediate penalty of 5% and recurring 9% annual interest until paid. If you have any questions, you can contact the Oregon Department of Revenue's Salem headquarters toll free (from inside Oregon) at 1-800-356-4222.
