Welcome to OLCC's Privilege Tax website

In Oregon, businesses that distribute, import or produce beer, cider or wine are required to pay privilege tax, as set forth in Oregon Revised Statute 473.

How do businesses file privilege tax?

Oregon Privilege Tax Online

In an effort to modernize and streamline tax payments in 2021, OLCC began transitioning from a paper based process to an online portal known as Oregon Privilege Tax Online (OPTO) that enables businesses to create an account that associates with all of their reportable licenses, designate filers, file privilege taxes, make a product destruction claim, submit documentation, and remit payment electronically.

Currently, Oregon distributors (WMBW licenses), wholesale suppliers (CERA licenses), brewpubs (BP) and breweries (B) have transitioned over to the OPTO system. Once a license group (e.g. WMBW, CERA, etc.) is transitioned into OPTO, the OLCC will no longer accept paper statements nor payments by check from that license group.

Traditional Paper Filing
In an effort to accommodate businesses transition to online reporting and payments, the OLCC is gradually phasing in businesses by license type. In the summer of 2022, Wineries will begin transitioning over to the OPTO system.

Oregon Wine Board Tax Report

For questions, please contact: olcc.owbreporting@oregon.gov

Listed below are the approximate barrels of malt beverages and the gallons of wine reported as taxable for each month. This report is a combination from all privilege tax license types - Wholesale Malt Beverage and Wine, Warehouse, Brewery, Brew Pub, Winery, and Growers Sales Privilege. 
 
Wine claimed as tax exempt (produced by small wineries who qualified for the exemption) is not included in the gallons below. 

*OLCC implemented a new system for Wholesale Malt Beverage & Wine (WMBW) and Warehouses (WH). While filers adjust to the new system, not all reports have not been submitted yet, and this is reflected in the low numbers shown for Malt Beverages.

The OLCC is modernizing the reporting of beer sales, moving from a paper-based process to an online reporting system. Because of data gaps between the two systems the OLCC is unable to produce complete reports during the transition. 

This transformation, which is part of a larger data migration project, is expected to be finished in 2023. When the changeover is complete OLCC plans to resume publishing  this type of alcohol sales data.

Wine Reports 
As of January 2021, these reports do not include Wholesale Malt Beverage and Wine (WMBW), and Warehouse (WH) information. A new report feature is under construction.

Gallons of wine removed from bond or imported into Oregon as reported* by Oregon wineries for each month. *Amounts reported are approximate
