You May Qualify for a Bigger Refund with the Earned Income Tax Credit

The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is a federal tax credit for working people with low to moderate income. To qualify, you must meet certain requirements and file a tax return, even if you do not owe any tax or are not required to file.

One in five taxpayers who qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit will not claim it, often because they don't know it exists. Learn more on the EITC Outreach website. If you need no-cost tax filing help, visit the CASH Oregon website

Your Health Coverage and Tax Time

People who file a federal income tax return may get an IRS Form 1095 as proof of coverage. 

  • People with Health Insurance Marketplace coverage get Form 1095-A.
  • People with employer-sponsored coverage may get Form 1095-C.
  • People with other minimum essential coverage, such as the Oregon Health Plan (OHP), may get Form 1095-B.

Starting with tax year 2019, we no longer mail 1095-B forms to OHP members at tax time. To learn more about the changes to reporting health coverage at tax time, please visit

You don't need proof of OHP coverage (Form 1095-B) to file your taxes.

You do not need to have a copy of Form 1095-B to file your taxes. IRS says taxpayers can prepare and file returns using other information about their health insurance. To learn more about health care forms, visit IRS Questions and Answers.
