Oregon Tax Brackets 2016 - 2017

Looking at the tax rate and tax brackets shown in the tables above for Oregon, we can see that Oregon collects individual income taxes differently for Single versus Married filing statuses, for example. We can also see the progressive nature of Oregon state income tax rates from the lowest OR tax rate bracket of 5% to the highest OR tax rate bracket of 9.9%.

For single taxpayers living and working in the state of Oregon:

  • Tax rate of 5% on the first $3,350 of taxable income.
  • Tax rate of 7% on taxable income between $3,351 and $8,450.
  • Tax rate of 9% on taxable income between $8,451 and $125,000.

  • Tax rate of 7% on taxable income between $6,701 and $16,900.
  • Tax rate of 9% on taxable income between $16,901 and $250,000.
  • Tax rate of 9.9% on taxable income over $250,000.

For the Single, Married Filing Jointly, Married Filing Separately, and Head of Household filing statuses, the OR tax rates and the number of tax brackets remain the same. Notice, however, the Oregon income tax brackets for Married Filing Jointly double from $3,350 to $6,700 at 7%, and double from $125,000 to $250,000 at 9.9% the highest tax bracket. Married Filing Separately income tax brackets are one half that of the Married Filing Jointly income tax brackets in the state of Oregon.
