EUGENE, Ore. – Oregonians won’t be waiting around for a kicker check this year, as the state has a different plan for distributing the $1.9 billion tax surplus.
The Oregon Department of Revenue said taxpayers will be able to claim their share of the surplus through a credit on their 2021 state personal income tax returns, which will be filed in 2022.
Do you want to find out how much you can expect to get back? State officials say all you need to do is put some information into the What’s My Kicker? calculator to find out.
Oregonians are eligible for the kicker if they filed a 2020 tax return and had tax due before credits. Even if you don’t need to file taxes in 2021, you still need to file a return for the year to claim the credit, state officials said.
Free tax preparation services are available to low to moderate-income taxpayers through AARP and CASH Oregon. United Way also offers free tax assistance through the MyFreeTaxes program.
