OREGON – 2024 Taxable Wage Base and Tax Rates Increase, Paid Leave Contribution Rate Update

In 2024, the taxable wage base in Oregon will increase to $52,800, up 3.7% as compared to $50,900 in 2023. Additionally, the state announced that their tax rate schedule will move from Schedule II to Schedule III, which is a higher tax rate schedule for 2024. Based on Schedule III, tax rates will range from 0.9% to 5.4% with a new employer rate of 2.4%. This increase was driven by wage growth in 2022, which led to higher weekly benefit payouts in 2023.

Meanwhile, the Paid Leave Oregon contribution rate will be 1% of employee wages, applied to the first $168,600 of wages. Employers pay 40% of the required rate, while employees pay the remainder.
