Subject: Oregon Transit Tax to be deducted from payroll

 Implementation Date: 7/1/2018

 Overview: The 2017 Oregon Legislature passed House Bill (HB) 2017, which included the new statewide transit tax. On July 1, 2018, employers must start withholding the tax (one-tenth of 1 percent or .001). This withholding applies to all Oregon residents regardless of where they work AND all non-residents who work in Oregon.

 Steps to Take: 1) Notify employees. We recommend a brief note on their pay stub.
2) Make sure your payroll staff or vendor is prepared for the change.

More details are available from the Oregon Department of Revenue
