Why Join Us

Mission: Together, we collect the revenue that Oregon counts on.

We are committed to bringing in the correct amount of revenue that Oregon counts on, whether through tax programs we administer, supporting our partners’ revenue collection efforts, or collecting on debts owed the state of Oregon. Together, all of our efforts—every employee and every job at Revenue—supports bringing in billions of dollars Oregon counts on every biennium.

Vision: To create a clear and easy experience for our customers.

A customer is anyone who receives revenue, products, or services from us. Our customers include taxpayers, community-based organizations, people who owe a debt to the state, tax professionals, partners, local governments, state agencies, Oregonians, and the state of Oregon. We envision a clear and easy experience for all our customers, from an individual making a payment, to a state agency counting on the revenue we collect.

Values: We work to earn the trust of taxpayers.

Every taxpayer and every taxpayer interaction are essential. We earn trust by focusing on taxpayers’ experience with us. We provide excellent customer service and efficient processes. We are honest and transparent about our work and what people can expect from us. We ask for feedback. We consider how our decisions impact our customers. We think about how each of us can positively impact our customers in all our roles at Revenue.

We seek dignity and inclusion for all.

All people are worthy of being valued and respected. Not all people, or all communities, are starting from the same place due to historical and current systems of oppression. Different individual’s or group’s needs can require different levels of support to achieve fairness in outcomes. Inclusion is a state of belonging when persons of different backgrounds, experiences, and identities are valued, integrated, and welcomed equitably as decision-makers, collaborators, and colleagues. Ultimately, inclusion is the environment that organizations create to allow these differences to thrive. At Revenue, we strive to appreciate and prioritize different backgrounds, identities, and experiences collectively and individually. These differences are strengths that maximize our ability to be effective.

We do the right thing.

Doing the right thing means doing what is ethical rather than what is easiest or most practical. We act with integrity, make decisions, conduct tasks, and take actions in the best interest of Oregon and our customers.

We build partnerships.

We ask for input from, listen to, and collaborate with our partners. Nobody succeeds in a silo. We learn from the people around us and remember and recognize the people involved in our successes.

We rise to the occasion.

We meet change, challenges, and unexpected situations head-on and adapt to do what is necessary to succeed in our mission. We have a “can-do” attitude, we are accountable, and we can be counted on. We also have the courage to say “no” if something does not align with our mission, vision, and values.
