Licensed retailers


If you registered for the marijuana tax program as a dispensary, you don't need to register again. We'll update your registration once we receive your license information.

If you haven't yet registered with us, you can do so electronically through Revenue Online after November 15. You need to register with us before you make your first monthly payment.

Paying your taxes

Each month, the tax you collected from customers during the previous month is due to us. Currently, you can pay by cash, check, or money order. If you're paying in cash, you must schedule an appointment at least 48 hours in advance. Call us at (503) 945-8050 to make an appointment.

Quarterly return filing

Licensed retailers are required to file online every quarter. Online filing is available through Revenue Online. The monthly vouchers you submit with your payments don't take the place of your quarterly filing.

Revenue Online

Licensed retailers can file quarterly returns and more with a Revenue Online account. With a Revenue Online account, you can also:
  • Set up a payment plan.
  • Add a power of attorney to your account.
  • Send us secure messages directly.
  • Check your account balances.
  • Once you become licensed with OLCC and register with us, you'll receive an introductory letter with information on signing up for a Revenue Online account. Because Revenue Online is a secure application, you'll need to validate your account before you can access your tax information.
