Newsroom release

Starting with the filing of 2014 returns this year, the Oregon Department of Revenue will be assessing penalties for failing to file information returns electronically.

Oregon requires businesses filing any number of W2s or more than ten 1099s to file those electronically through iWire by March 31.

The penalty will be $50 per return, with a maximum of $2,500. If a business knowingly fails to file or knowingly files an incomplete, false, or misleading return, the penalty will be $250 per return, up to a maximum of $25,000.

All electronic filing must be done through iWire, a free, browser-based application available through our website. Many software vendors and payroll providers have updated their programs to support Oregon iWire. If your software does not support Oregon iWire, submit your file using the specifications provided on our website.

You can contact the iWire team by phone at 503-945-8127, during normal business hours, or by email at
