Starting this January, Oregon employers must send their employees specific information about the Oregon and federal earned income tax credits (“EITC”) with every W-2. The notice must be sent at the same time as the W-2, in the same manner as the W-2 (electronically or mail), and say this:

 

“Employees may be eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC or EIC), a benefit for working people with low to moderate income, particularly those with children.  EITC reduces the amount of tax owed and may provide a refund.

Here is BOLI’s very minimal guidance on this matter. Please call your Stoel Rives employment attorney with any questions.
