The Oregon Department of Revenue collects the revenue that Oregon counts on. The agency has about 1,000 employees. Each biennium, more than 95% of Oregon’s General Fund is attributable to the work done by the department. The department administers 65 revenue streams, including Oregon’s Personal Income Tax, Corporation Excise Tax, Marijuana Retail Tax, Corporate Activity Tax, and cigarette and other tobacco tax programs.
The agency also supervises the state’s property tax system and supports county property tax administration, appraises large industrial and centrally assessed properties, administers tax programs for other state agencies and local governments, including the State Transient Lodging Tax, vehicle privilege and use taxes, local marijuana taxes, and transit district taxes, and serves as the primary collections agency for executive branch agencies and state boards and commissions.
The department is headquartered in Salem, with regional offices throughout the state.
