Payroll Taxes


Welcome to the Oregon Payroll Reporting System (OPRS) Page!​

The Oregon Payroll Reporting System (OPRS) is a secure Web based application that will replace several reporting options a​nd allow the department to shift from the labor intensive process of processing paper filings.

An OPRS Steering Committee meets regularly and includes Oregon business owners to help take employer needs into account. This new application benefits for employers including:

  • ​An easier, faster, and more user-friendly way to file payroll tax reports
  • No downloads or installations to your computer
  • Improved accuracy of payroll data by having checkpoints throughout the application
  • Access to real-time information
The Oregon Employment Department is excited to announce the launch of OPRS. If you would like to learn more, select one of the links below. If you are ready to use OPRS now and/or have already registered and wish to log in, select the 'Register/Log in Here' box.

"Frances*," the Oregon Employment Department's new, modernized system, is coming in September 2022!

Frances Online will support both Unemployment Insurance and Paid Leave Oregon, the new Paid Family and Medical Leave program. Beginning with the third quarter filing in 2022, Frances Online will replace the Oregon Payroll Reporting System (OPRS) and the Employer Account Access (EAA) portal. The system will start supporting Paid Leave Oregon contributions in the first quarter of 2023.

Frances Online will support combined payroll reporting; including Unemployment Insurance tax, Workers' Benefit Fund (WBF), State Withholding Tax, Lane and TriMet Transit taxes, and beginning in the first quarter of 2023, Statewide Transit Tax (STT) and Paid Leave contributions. In Frances Online, you will have more options for account access and filing your payroll reports as well as many new features, including assistance from a chat bot, secure messaging, viewable letters, and integration of employer tax rates.

*The new system is named in honor of Frances Perkins, the U.S. Secretary of Labor from 1933 – 1945 and the first woman to serve in a Presidential cabinet.​
