Unemployment Insurance Tax
Unemployment Insurance Tax is administered by the Oregon Employment Department.
The new system, Frances Online*, supports both unemployment insurance (UI) and Paid Leave Oregon, the new program for family, medical and safe leave as well as Withholding, TriMet Transit, Lane Transit, and Statewide Transit Tax.
Beginning with the third quarter filing in 2022, Frances Online replaced the Oregon Payroll Reporting System (OPRS) and the Employer Account Access (EAA) portal.
The system started supporting the Statewide Transit Tax (STT) and Paid Leave Oregon contributions in the first quarter of 2023.
You will use Frances Online to:
- Easily update your account information, manage account access and add and make changes to your staff access, and connect your clients to your account.
- File and amend your combined payroll report and find your tax rate and those of your clients.
- View the letters we send you, send and receive secure messaging from inside the system, and more!
