TaxACT supports the entry of the subtraction code and the amount on Line 18 of Oregon Form 40 (Line 37 of Form 40N or 40P), but does not support the Exempt Income Schedule for Enrolled Members of a Federally Recognized American Indian Tribe which needs to be sent with the return. You would need to manually complete the form and paper file the return. You can obtain the form and the instructions on the Oregon website Exempt Income Schedule for Enrolled Members of a Federally Recognized American Indian Tribe.

To enter the subtraction code and amount in the TaxACT program:
  1. From within your TaxACT return (Online or Desktop) click on the State Q&A tab, then click Oregon bellow the blue tabs
  2. Click Income to expand the category, then click Other Subtractions from Income
  3. On the screen titled Oregon - Other Subtractions, select American Indian and enter the amount
This information will transfer to Line 18 of Oregon Form 40 (Line 37 of Form 40N or 40P).
