The Oregon Department of Revenue has announced an extension for Oregon tax filing and payment deadlines for personal income taxes and some other taxes closely following the IRS extension declaration.
The Oregon Employment Department (OED) has opened the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) Program. This program makes unemployment insurance benefits to those not normally covered by unemployment but who have been impacted by the COVID-19 business closures.
Oregonians who are eligible for PUA include individuals who do not qualify for or cannot collect benefits on a regular unemployment insurance claim. This includes Oregonians who:
- Are self-employed and not subject to unemployment insurance tax;
- Perform work as an independent contractor;
- Perform work not subject to unemployment insurance tax, such as agricultural workers;
- Did not earn enough in wages or work enough hours to qualify for regular unemployment benefits;
- Exhausted regular unemployment benefits and are not eligible for another extension.
For more information and instructions to apply, visit the OED’s CARES Act page.
