Does QB file Oregon state taxes or do I have to do this manually?

I just received my BIN for Oregon but expected that once I had this QB would allow online filing of future state taxes. Is this true?

Your confusion ends here, @odemmedo44-gmail.


With QuickBooks Online Payroll, we help pay and file your federal and state taxes for you. Once you fully enter your state information, Intuit will file the forms that are required for your company by each state or local tax agency.


To learn which taxes and tax forms Intuit handles for your business, you can check out this article: Tax payments and forms Intuit payroll submits for you.


You might also want to know more about Oregon Payroll Tax Compliance. This will help you find details on tax forms, withholdings, unemployment and other tax, e-file and pay information, general state and agency information, and employer registration.


It's nice working with you, @odemmedo44-gmail. Please let me know if you need clarification about filing state taxes in QuickBooks. I'll be standing by for your response.

I need help! I've spent over 25 hours with QBO migrating from desktop. We have used Paycyle for years. No issues with online payroll. 

I successfully set up Federal Taxes and now QBO "back office" is telling me that we are not subject to local taxes. For a fact, I know that we have state payroll taxes (Oregon). That is absolutely bogus. So they cannot pay any oregon state taxes.

Let me share some information about the taxes in Oregon, Ronda.


QuickBooks Online (QBO) is used for recording purposes only. Depending on your subscription to QBO payroll, you can record, process, pay, and file your forms electronically. However, please note that local taxes are paid outside. 


Regarding you being subjected to local tax, yes, you are. However, it still depends on the plan that you're currently in. 


See the picture below to see what subscription can handle taxes: 



Based on this picture, QBO Payroll Premium and Elite are the ones that can process the local taxes. This explains why users who are using QBO Payroll Core have to process their local taxes manually outside of QBO. But you don't have to worry since you can use the Payroll Tax Liability to see your local tax liabilities and then record the local tax you've made to balance your report. 


For more details regarding the screenshot that I've attached, you can check out this article: Understand the taxes and forms that QuickBooks payroll submits for you.


In addition, know that you can also Pay and file your local taxes in QuickBooks Online Payroll based on your subscription. 


You may also want to see this material since it has some information on how to access your state agency websites: Access state agency websites for payroll.

If you have further concerns or information regarding taxes, you're always welcome to reply to my post.

QBO didn't file my 3rd qtr payroll taxes for the state, so I'm trying to figure out how to do that manually.  The OR state filing form asks for state income tax withholding, statewide transit tax, trite transit district and lane transit district.  Where do I find that info on QBO?

I appreciate you joining the thread and detailing your concerns about your 3rd quarterly payroll taxes for the state. I have here information and guidelines to help you achieve your goal.


If your 3rd quarter didn't file for your local taxes in Oregon, it is possible because of your current subscription. If you are using QuickBooks Online Payroll Core, even though you can set up those local tax filling, QBO doesn't support those. In this case, it will not appear in your Payroll Tax center. To get this information, you can use the Payroll report for the local tax liability amount.


  1. Go to Reports from the left menu. 
  2. Enter Payroll Tax Liability in the Search box and select it. 
  3. Select Customize.
  4. Include all the information according to your needs.
  5. Click Run report


On the other hand, for your statewide transit tax, trite transit district, and lane transit district, you contact your state agency, as they are the best person who can provide you with the details about these matters.


I'm adding these articles you can use in the future:



If you have questions about your 3rd Quarterly Payroll Taxes, post them here in the forum. I'll be sure to answer them in any possible way. Have a great day!
