Oregon: Employers Must Notify Employees of Earned Income Tax Credits

Law Creates New Notice Requirement

A new law in Oregon requires employers to provide written notice to each employee about the state and federal earned income tax credits. Additional details are presented below.

New Notice Requirement
Under the law, the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) is expected to adopt rules to require employers to provide written notice to each employee about the state and federal earned income tax credits. The notice must:

  • Be in English and in the language the employer typically uses to communicate with the employee.
  • Be sent annually with the employee's federal Form W-2.
  • Provide website addresses for the Internal Revenue Service and the State Department of Revenue where the employee can find information about the state and federal earned income tax credits.

The BOLI is expected to include, in any poster regarding the state minimum wage, notice to employees about the state and federal earned income tax credits.

The law takes effect on the 91st day after the date on which the 2017 regular session of the Seventy-ninth Legislative Assembly adjourns "sine die." Click here for updates regarding adjournment. The text of the law is also available for review.
