Oregon Business Identification Number Required on Pay stub


Oregon Senate Bill 1587 now requires the Employer's Business Registration number to be displayed on the pay stubs for all employees who reside in Oregon. Since this is not available in QuickBooks Desktop, the Business Identification Number (State Agency ID as entered in the OR - Withholding Payroll Item) will be used instead.

You will be prompted to enter their Agency ID for OR - Withholding unless it already exists in the Payroll Item.

Note: QuickBooks Desktop currently prints the Oregon BIN on pay stubs which are printed separately. The ability to print the Oregon BIN on the voucher portion of voucher paychecks will be made available at a later date.


To assign a Business Identification Number to your OR - Withholding Payroll Item:

  1. From the QuickBooks Desktop Lists menu, click on Payroll Item List.
  2. Right click on the OR - Withholding payroll item and select Edit Payroll Item.
  3. Click Next to go the Agency for employee-paid liability window.
  4. Enter the Business Identification Number under the field Enter the number that identifies you to the agency.
