You may be able to subtract some or all of your taxable federal pension included in federal income, including benefits paid to the retiree or the beneficiary.

The subtraction amount is based on the number of months of federal service before and after October 1, 1991.

If you do not have any months of service or points earned prior to October 1, 1991, then you cannot take this subtraction.

The pension exclusion is calculated by the user and entered in the program using the following steps:

  1. From within your TaxAct® return (Online or Desktop) click State and then click Oregon in the expanded State menu. 
  2. Click Income to expand the category and then click Federal Pension Income Subtraction.
  3. Enter the information related to your pension income. 
  4. Click Continue

Federal pension income is pension provided to the user through the federal government. This could be from services with the Department of Agriculture, Air Force, Department of Defense, etc. This would be income paid to the retiree or the beneficiary.
