Oregon periodically offers a tax surplus credit when tax collections are strong in any given tax year. This credit is available to taxpayers on 2017 returns.

If the kicker credit was not included on your original return, it is likely that the Oregon Department of Revenue will adjust the amount due for you. If they do not, you will need to amend your Oregon return. To avoid confusion, it is best to wait until your original return has been processed. The following will take you back to the part of the program where you can enter the 2016 information needed to calculate the Oregon Surplus (Kicker) credit.

  1. From within your TaxAct return (Online or Desktop), click on the State tab. On smaller devices, click the menu icon in the upper left-hand corner, then select State
  2. Click Oregon directly below the tabs at the top of the screen
  3. Click Credits 
  4. Click Review to the right of Oregon Surplus (Kicker) Credit, the program will proceed with the interview questions for you to enter or review the appropriate information
