Oregon personal income tax credits

If you qualify for the federal Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), you can also claim the Oregon Earned Income Credit (EIC). Your Oregon EIC is 8 percent of your federal EITC if you're a full-time resident, and 8 percent of your federal EITC multiplied by your Oregon percen​tage if you're a part-year or nonresident. Beginning with tax year 2017, if you qualify for the federal EITC and your qualifying dependent is age two or under on December 31st, your Oregon credit is 11 percent of your federal credit.

The Working Family Household and Dependent Care Credit (WFHDC)​ combines the benefits of Oregon's Working Family Child Care Credit (WFC) and Child and Dependent Care Credit (CDC) into one comprehensive tax credit. The purpose of this credit is to help low- to moderate-income families pay for the care of their dependents while they're working or looking for work.​​

The following credits may be claimed using Schedule OR-ASC if filing a full-year return, or Schedule OR-ASC-NP​ if filing a part-year or nonresident return. Prorated credits are marked as "PR" in the tables below.
