Want to receive your Oregon tax refund more quickly and save a trip to the bank? Requesting direct deposit on your Oregon tax return means your refund will be deposited directly into your account at a bank or other financial institution that you designate. Direct deposit is secure and simple to use.
Last year, over 384,000 Oregon taxpayers used direct deposit.
To request direct deposit, a taxpayer will need to enter their account number and their bank's routing number on their Oregon tax return. These numbers can be found at the bottom of personal checks or by contacting the banking institution in question. The Oregon Department of Revenue (ODOR) does not notify taxpayers when a deposit is made, so taxpayers will need to check their accounts for the deposit, which should be six to eight weeks after a return is filed.
If for some reason a direct deposit request is rejected by a bank, ODOR will sent a check to the address on the return.
