Earned Income Tax Credit Notification Requirements
The Oregon Legislature enacted SB 398 this year, a one-page bill that went into effect in September 2017.
The law requires employers to provide written notice to each employee about the state and federal Earned Income Tax Credits along with the employee’s W-2s.
This notice must also include the website addresses for both the Internal Revenue Service and the Oregon Department of Revenue that provide information about qualifying for the Earned Income Credit. This notice must be provided to employees with their 2017 W-2s and each year thereafter.
Oregon has provided sample language and guidance for the new EITC notice on this website: http://www.oregon.gov/boli/TA/Pages/ETIC_Notice.aspx
