You may choose to have 10% of your weekly benefit amount withheld for federal income taxes and/or 6% for state income taxes. Any taxes withheld are immediately transmitted to the Internal Revenue Service and the Oregon Department of Revenue. Changing your tax status requires a completed Authorization of Tax Withholding (1040WH) form. To download the Spanish version of this form, click here, or call the UI center to have one mailed to you.
If you do not actively choose to have taxes withheld, they will not be taken out of your benefit payments.
