Oregon will begin processing 2022 state income tax returns Jan. 23
Salem, OR — The Oregon Department of Revenue will begin processing 2022 state income tax returns Jan. 23, 2023, the same day the IRS will begin processing federal returns, according to a news advisory from state tax officials.
Although some taxpayers have already submitted their returns, processing doesn’t start until the tax season officially begins.
Returns will be processed in the order they are received. However, as in years past, the department won’t be issuing personal income tax refunds until after Feb. 15, according to the Oregon Department of Revenue.
A refund hold is part of the department’s tax fraud prevention efforts and allows for confirmation that the amounts claimed on tax returns match what employers report on Forms W-2 and 1099. Once the department begins processing returns, filers can check “Where’s My Refund?” on Revenue Online (www.oregon.gov/dor) to see the status of their refund.
E-filing is the fastest way for a taxpayer to get their refund, the advisory said. On average, taxpayers who e-file their returns and request their refund via direct deposit receive their refund sooner than those who file paper returns and request paper refund checks.
Anyone who needs a personal income tax return booklet can download and print it from the department’s website at www.oregon.gov/dor/forms They can also order a copy online, by calling 503-378-4988 or 800-356-4222, or by mailing their request — along with their name, phone number and mailing address to: Forms, Oregon Department of Revenue, PO Box 14999, Salem, OR 97309-0990
