About Us
Welcome to the Oregon Employment Department Tax Unit.
These pages will provide you with a quick way of getting information and assistance on Oregon unemployment insurance taxes.
Mission Statement
Promote voluntary compliance by employers to ensure a low cost, equitable tax system that allows accurate and prompt payment of benefits to unemployed workers.
Annual Performance Measures

Our business is to collect the wage data and employer contributions used to determine eligibility and pay unemployment insurance benefits to workers. This requires exchanging information with over 110,000 Oregon employers and maintaining wage records on 1.9 million Oregon employees each quarter. To reduce the reporting burden on employers, the State of Oregon has combined registrations, reports, and payments for payroll taxes.
The Employment Department has a strong partnership with the Department of Revenue (withholding and transit) and the Department of Consumer & Business Services (workers' benefit fund) to provide these services.
You will find links to these and other partners on our web site along with highlighted new products and services.
