At the direction of Governor Kate Brown, the Oregon Department of Revenue today announced an extension for Oregon tax filing and payment deadlines for personal income taxes and some other taxes closely following the IRS extension declaration. This move is a result of the governor's priority to keep Oregonians safe and healthy, while also providing relief and consistency for Oregon taxpayers affected by the federal and state COVID-19 emergency.

Under the authority of ORS 305.157, the director of the Department of Revenue has ordered an automatic extension of the 2019 tax year filing and payment due dates for certain affected taxpayers as indicated below.

Below is an excerpt of the Director's Order which extends Oregon's 2019 tax year filing and payment due dates for certain affected taxpayers.
Except as specifically stated in this order, this order does not change any other payment, filing or other deadline prescribed by law.


For Personal Income Tax (PIT), Transit Self-Employment Tax, and Fiduciary Taxpayers:

  *   The Oregon return filing due date for tax year 2019 is automatically extended from April 15, 2020 to July 15, 2020.
  *   The Oregon tax payment deadline for payments due with the tax year 2019 tax return is automatically extended to July 15, 2020. Estimated tax payments for tax year 2020 are not extended.

The tax year 2019 six-month extension to file, if requested, continues to extend only the filing deadline until October 15, 2020.

For Corporate Excise/Income Taxpayers:

  *   The Oregon return filing due date for tax year 2019 is automatically extended from May 15, 2020 until July 15, 2020. Fiscal year returns due after May 15, 2020 are not extended at this time.
  *   The Oregon tax payment deadline for payments due with the 2019 return by May 15, 2020 is automatically extended to July 15, 2020. Payments for fiscal year returns due after May 15, 2020 are not extended at this time. Estimated tax payments for tax year 2020 are not extended.

Other information
Taxpayers do not need to file any additional forms or call to qualify for this automatic Oregon tax filing and payment extension.

The department is in the process of updating our website and instructions to match these changes.

Interest and penalties
As a result of the extension of the due dates for filing Oregon tax returns and making Oregon tax payments to July 15, 2020, interest and penalties with respect to the Oregon tax filings and payments extended by this Order will begin to accrue on July 16, 2020.

The department will be updating our COVID-19 tax relief<https://www.oregon.gov/dor/Pages/COVID19.aspx> page shortly with questions and answers.
