 The new OR STT, effective on all paychecks issued on or after July 1, 2018, is deducted from employee wages at a rate of 0.1% on all Oregon Wages.

Payment for the STT tax is made quarterly with a payment voucher and an annual reconciliation report is due each January for the year just ended. Both will be included in the Print & Mail Reports once they have been approved by Oregon for submission.

To set up the new Oregon STT deduction in your payroll program:

    • Go to Payroll Items and on the left side where you see your employee names click on "Employee List Settings " in red at the top of the list. 
    • To the left under "Deductions" in red click on the "NEW" box.
    • From the "Type" drop down menu choose "Training" -- Although technically it is not a training tax, choose Training for the Type as it will then show up on the payment voucher and annual reconciliation report for the Oregon STT
