ORS 3% Refund Payment - Non-Active Employees

As you know, the Supreme Court ruled that PA-75, which mandated members contribute 3% of their compensation to the Retiree Healthcare Fund from July 2010 through early September 2012, is unconstitutional and that member contributions be refunded.

Please note that the District was not involved in the computation of the refund or interest; accordingly, we could not make any adjustments to these refunds.  The original deductions were not subject to federal or state withholding taxes, including Social Security and Medicare; therefore when the refund is processed all of these taxes are required to be withheld.  Per auditors guidance taxes were calculated using the last W-4 on file with the district.  While the interest portion of your refund will not be taxed, it must be included as taxable income on your 2018 Individual Tax Return 1040 form.  Please consult your tax advisor with respect to the reporting of interest income.

Below is a sample of a check stub.  You will see the reimbursement amount under Payments.  The interest earned will be listed under Deductions, and for processing through the system the amount will display as a negative. (Negative Deduction = Positive Amount).
