Washington residents who work for an Oregon employer may allocate their wages for days worked in and out of Oregon. Income tax is due to Oregon only for days worked in the state. Due to Covid-19, more people than ever are working from home. This may be a good opportunity to reduce your Oregon income tax.
Oregon requires documentation of the days worked in and out of the state. Ideally, you should obtain a letter from your employer that verifies the total number of days worked, and the days worked in Oregon. Holidays, vacation, sick, and other PTO days do not count in the “days worked” calculation.
