How do I get my Oregon Kicker check? It didn't get added to my state return. Did I do something wrong?

@j_lettire

 

Thank you for sending the token. I have looked at the sanitized version of your return, and you have the kicker applied to your Oregon tax return.

 

It was enough to change your Oregon return from a tax due to a refund.

 

Evidently, you filed with TurboTax also in 2018. Another user on this forum has suggested that if you used TurboTax in 2018, the amount of tax paid is carried over to 2019, so that as soon as you start your Oregon return, the kicker is automatically calculated and added, even before the kicker screen.

 

You can prove this to yourself by writing down your Oregon refund, then going in to TurboTax and setting the 2018 state tax to zero. Your Oregon refund should drop by the amount of the kicker (because you just set the amount of the kicker to zero).

 

If this is what happens, then you now know that the kicker was already in your return (besides, I can see it).

 

AND BE SURE to go back into your return and change the 2018 state back to what it should be!

Instead of issuing a Kicker check in 2019, the State of Oregon will issue the credit on your Oregon State Tax return. If you are eligible for the Kicker Credit, Turbo Tax will determine what the amount of your credit is.

 

According to the following  link, the kicker credit is available for 2019.  This State of Oregon document explains how the credit is determined. Here are the highlights of the document:

 

1) To calculate the amount of your credit, multiply your 2018 tax liability before any credits—line 22 on the 2018 Form OR-40—by 17.171 percent according to OR-40 full year instructions.  This information is found on page 16 in this link

 

2) Taxpayers who claimed a credit for tax paid to another state will need to subtract the credit amount from their liability before calculating the credit. This is if you filed a state return in any other state besides Oregon.

Turbo Tax will perform any subtractions

 

3) You're eligible to claim the kicker if you filed a 2018 tax return and had tax due before credits. Even if you don't have a filing obligation for 2019, you still must file a 2019 tax return to claim your credit.  Please review this link on page 17 for detailed instructions on how your kicker credit is determined. you don't need to do any calculations. Turbo Tax will determine this for you.

 

Lastly, to enter your kicker information into Turbo Tax, please log into your Turbo Tax account and perform the following steps:

1) Select state in the left navigational pane.

2) Once you make the selection, Turbo Tax, will transfer the information in your federal return to your state return.

3) next screen will ask you what Oregon return you wish to file. If you were a full year resident, you will select full year Oregon Resident return. Press Continue

4) press continue on the next screen

5) press Done with Income on the screen that says, Here's the income that Oregon handles differently.

6) The very next screen will begin the interview questions to see if you are eligible for the kicker credit. This is going to ask you questions about your 2018 Oregon return to see if you are eligible for the credit. If you are eligible for the credit, Turbo Tax will determine the amount of credit you are eligible for.

i used the 2019 turbotax and it failed to direct me to the correct line on the 2018 oregon tax return form to get my tax liability for 2018. subsequently i did not get my kicker refund added to my 2019 return. i believe this is turbotax software fault. how do i amend my return and where are the specific  and correct instructions on how to get my kicker refund using the free edition turbotax software?

To amend, follow these instructions:How do I amend my 2019 TurboTax Online return? - Community

 

To get the 2019 Oregon kicker refund, you would enter the information in the Oregon state tax section under Credits.

The Oregon kicker is not being added to my return. I have the same Oregon refund before and after I completed the kicker section and my kicker was calculated to be $1,537.

Turbox Tax Deluxe is not adding my Oregon sate kicker to my refund. My state refund was the same both before and after I completed the kicker category. Think there is a problem with the software.

Same as others who have already posted - my Oregon Kicker was not added to my state refund amount.  This looks like a software error that has been in place for the last 2 weeks.  Is there any move to fix it?  If not, I'll have to file my Oregon tax return with an alternative software provider.  Please help.

It is working in my test, so let's see what you have:

 

On your OR-40, what are the values in lines 34 and 36?

 

On your Kicker Credit worksheet, what are the values on all lines that have a value in them?

I am also having this problem. My OR kicker credit is $1,392.00, but not adding into my OR refund.  The number stays the same.  Shouldn't the OR Refund number go up by the exact amount stated? I tried to continue on hoping it would add in later.  It didn't.  I did not finish filing.  Kicker.JPG

Is anyone using the CD/download software? If so, can you look at your Oregon return and tell me what values are on the lines I asked about just above?

 

And can I ask a silly question? Is it possible that you asked the kicker to be contributed to the State School Fund?

@BillM223 

I am not using the software.  I am doing it online.

I didn't donate.  I triple checked that. 🙂 

When Turbotax asked for line 22 from OR 40 it auto filled and it was correct.  That number was $8,107.00

Line 34 is Reserved

Line 36 is $6,648.00

I hope this helps.  I am lost.  I called and after 3 long holds was hung up on.

Any chance you paid taxes to other states?
