Oregon Weight-Mile Tax Due For Monthly Filers

First year Oregon Weight-Mile filers are required to file their return on a monthly basis. The deadline to file your November return is next Tuesday, December 31st.

For motor carriers operating commercial vehicles on Oregon public highways, with a gross weight in excess of 26,000 lbs, they are required by the Oregon Department of Transportation to have a Weight Receipts and Tax Identifier, or Receipt. The Oregon Motor Carrier Transportation Division issues these credentials and you are required to file a tax return regardless if you owe any tax or not, meaning you have to file a quarterly return even if no miles were traveled in Oregon. You must cancel your Weight Receipt if you will no longer be operating in Oregon.  

You must report mileage tax on a monthly basis during your first year, after which you may request to pay on a quarterly basis.  While paying on a monthly basis, the report and payment must be postmarked by the postal service by the last day of the month following the reporting period.  For example, your November report must be postmarked no later than December 31st.

If you are reporting on a quarterly basis, your 4th quarter return for October-December will be due February 28th.  The quarterly due dates are as follows:

January – March
May 31
April – June
August 31
July – September
November 30
October – December
February 28
