Final Report on Withholding Tax Program with Department of Revenue

The Department of Revenue (DOR) asked BCD and the State Plumbing Board to work with them to include Plumbing Contractors in a campaign to inform a portion of their audience on tax compliance responsibilities. House Bill 3082 authorized DOR to develop a pilot project that required people who hold state-issued occupational licenses to be in tax compliance. Plumbing Contractors subject to Oregon's Withholding Tax Program were selected as part of Phase II of the project. DOR contacted BCD licensees who fell into this group. Licensees that DOR determined fell into this group received a letter and informational brochure. Involvement in this project did not affect the licenses of the participants. Now the final report for this project is available.
