About the department

Welcome from Director Betsy Imholt

Welcome. I am proud to introduce you to the Oregon Department of Revenue.

Our mission—Together, we collect the revenue that Oregon counts on—accurately describes how our employees are at the heart of all public services in Oregon. We levy taxes and fees necessary to support critical programs that Oregonians depend on.

Year after year our employees rise to the occasion to deliver for Oregonians. In addition to collecting taxes and fees we also issue tax refunds and direct payments to families.

We can do this because the 1,000 employees at the department share in our vision: to create a clear and easy experience for our customers. Are you interested in joining the Revenue team? Are you willing to partner with your team and colleagues to solve-problems and improve processes? If so, we would love to meet you. 

I welcome you to explore the exciting opportunities we offer in developing and growing your leadership skills, highlighting your talent, and enabling you to achieve our goals together.

We look forward to your application.

The Public Employees Benefit Board (PEBB)​ designs, contracts, and administers the benefits program for State of Oregon employees, their spouse/partner, and their dependents. The insurance benefits include medical, dental, life, accident, disability, and long-term care, as well as flexible spending accounts and commuter accounts. Employees have multiple options in choosing medical and dental insurance.​

The Public Employees Retirement System (PERS) is the retirement system for most public service workers in Oregon, including state employees. PERS-covered employees hired after Aug. 28, 2003, are Oregon Public Service Retirement Plan (OPSRP) members, unless membership was previously established in PERS. OPSRP has two components: the Pension Program and the Individual Account Program.

The OPSRP Pension Program is funded by your employer and provides a lifetime pension. It is designed to provide approximately 45 percent of your final average salary at retirement, for a general service member with a 30-year career. Final average salary is generally the average of the highest three consecutive years (or less if you were employed for less than three years) or one-third of total salary in the last 36 months of employment.​

The Oregon Savings Growth Plan​​ is a savings plan available to all Oregon public employees. Commonly known as OSGP, this deferred compensation plan can help public employees prepare for their future and retirement. It offers a variety of features and services with a diverse and easy-to-understand investment lineup.

Flexible Spending Account (FSA) allow you to use pre-tax dollars to reimburse yourself for IRS-qualified expenses.

  • Use a Health Care FSA for IRS-qualified medical and dental expenses not covered in your plan.
  • Use a Dependent Care FSA for IRS-qualified day care expenses that allow you to work.

You choose an annual amount to contribute to your account, and your payroll deducts your salary contribution (which must be at least $20) before calculating your taxes. Paying for eligible expenses with these pre-tax dollars saves on your taxes.

Here are things to know about these accounts.

  • FSAs operate according to IRS code.
  • The annual employee contribution limit for an individual health care FSA is $2,500.
  • The annual employee contribution limit for an individual dependent care FSA $5,000.
  • The minimum monthly contribution amount is $20.
  • When you enroll, you enroll for the entire plan year; plan accordingly.
  • You forfeit any funds that you don't use and claim for valid expenses by the deadline.
  • Your payroll will deduct even portions (which must be at least $20) of your annual total election amount from each paycheck over the course of the year. For academic-year employees, this may be nine or 10 months

​If you are struggling with a work or family issue, free and confidential help is just a phone call away. Cascade Centers provides Employee Assistance Program services to state agencies and employees. Cascade Centers provides professional counselors who can guide you over the phone or during in-office visits. They will listen to you, help you sort things out, and then work with you on a plan to set things straight. If needed, they can refer you to a provider in your medical plan.

All of your contact with Cascade Centers, from the first call to resolution, is private and confidential. No information about you goes to your employer or the Public Employees Benefit Board (PEBB).

You, your spouse or domestic partner, and eligible dependents may access the benefit individually or together. Your family members will also receive the same level of confidentiality. 

Cascade Centers' professionals have advanced degrees in counseling, social work, or psychology. They are all licensed practitioners.​


​Employment in any position with the Department of Revenue for all current and prospective employees is contingent on passing a criminal background and fingerprinting check. Circumstances of any criminal conviction will be reviewed to determine eligibility for the position under recruitment.​

​To work for the Department of Revenue you must comply with all income tax laws. This means that the department will check to see if you have filed Oregon income tax returns and made arrangements to pay any outstanding liabilities before offering you a position.​​
