Department of Revenue > Web site
The Oregon Department of Revenue started as the Oregon Tax Commission in 1909. The department has nearly 1,000 employees who help achieve its mission of making revenue systems work to fund the public services that preserve and enhance the quality of life for all citizens. The department administers more than 30 tax programs, including personal income tax, corporation taxes, cigarette and tobacco taxes and marijuana tax. Revenue’s tax programs provided 96 percent of Oregon’s General Fund revenue for the 2013–15 biennium.
While the department does not collect property taxes, it ensures property tax laws are applied fairly and equitably across Oregon’s 36 counties. The Property Tax Division administers the property tax deferral program, determines the value of industrial and centrally assessed properties, and supports and trains county appraisers and assessors. Revenue also collects debt on behalf of nearly 300 public agencies, commissions and boards.
The department is headquartered in Salem, with district offices in Portland, Gresham, Bend, Eugene and Medford.
