The Oregon Employment Department announced on its website it is offering relief to any employers subject to Unemployment Insurance Tax affected by the pandemic and the measures taken to slow its spread.  If an employer is unable to pay their unemployment insurance taxes fully for the first quarter of 2020 (for which the statutory deadline for payments was April 30, 2020) because of COVID-19 related factors, the Department will abate interest and penalties.  However, the payments must be made within 30 days of the COVID-19 Executive Orders being no longer in effect, or later if a payment arrangement is reached with the Employment Department. tax relief in the payment of their first quarter, 2020 unemployment taxes.

Governor Kate Brown announced on March 8, 2020, an emergency declaration under ORS 401.165 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  As a result, many employers had to reduce staff or close operations as the economy recovers.  If employers were affected by the pandemic and/or the measures taken to slow its spread, they will be allowed to request abatement of penalties and interest.

While the OED is offering this abatement, it is still requiring the reports to be timely filed because it assists them in awarding and assigning unemployment benefits to eligible claimants.  If a request for abatement is made by an employer, it must be completed no later than 30 days after the COVID-19 Executive Orders is no longer in effect.  The Application for Interest and Penalty Relief form must be completed and sent to the OED.  A link to this form can be found at the bottom of the webpage of this url.  https://www.oregon.gov/employ/Businesses/Tax/Pages/COVID-19-Employer-Relief.aspx
