Payment is due on April 15, 2019, regardless of any extension you may have to file your return. If payment isn’t made by the due date, interest and penalties may be charged. See “Interest and penalties” for more information.
Electronic payments from your checking or savings account
You can pay your prior year income taxes, current year income taxes, and 2019 estimated income taxes directly from your checking or savings account. You also have the option to pay by direct debit when you file your return. There is no fee for this. Visit our website for more information.
Credit card payments
You can pay your current-year balance due, make estimated tax payments for 2019, and pay prior year taxes with your Discover, MasterCard, or Visa credit card.
To make an online payment, go to Revenue Online on our website. A convenience fee may be charged for this service. Keep the payment confirmation number for your records.
Payment by check or money order
• Make your check or money order payable to Oregon Department of Revenue.
• Write the tax year, the form number or type of payment you’re making, and the last four digits of your SSN or ITIN on your check.
• Use blue or black ballpoint pen. Don’t use red or purple ink or gel pens.
• Don’t send cash or a postdated check.
• Include the payment voucher, Form OR-40-V with your payment. Form OR-40-V is available in our tax booklets and on our website.
Direct deposit of refund
Your income tax refund can be deposited directly into your account at a bank or other financial institution, including credit unions.
If you are filing a joint return, both you and your spouse must sign the tax return. Without both signatures, we can’t deposit the refund directly into your account.
Note: Some banks may not accept direct deposits into accounts that are payable through another bank. Also, some banks don’t permit the deposit of a joint refund into an individual account. In addition, we can’t direct deposit a refund if the final destination is a foreign bank account.
Contact your bank to make sure your deposit will be accepted.
Make sure you have your correct routing number (from a check, not from a deposit slip) and account number.
• Routing numbers are nine digits and must begin with 01 through 12, 21 through 32, or 61 through 72.
• Account numbers can be up to 17 characters, both numbers and letters.
If the direct deposit is rejected, we will issue a check and send it to the mailing address shown on your return.
