Tips for passwords and access to the Online Assessment Community (OAC) 

  • Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome are the preferred browsers.
  • Always access the Online Assessment Community directly from the Tax Department website. (Do not use browser bookmarks or favorites.)
  • Select ONLINE ASSESSMENT COMMUNITY LOG IN located in the middle of the page (not the Log in button on the top-right of the page)
  • If you have trouble logging in:
    • clear your browsing history,
    • clear your temporary files, 
    • clear your cookies, 
    • clear your cache, and then
    • restart your browser.

Take those steps even if you have done so recently. Doing so typically resolves the issue. To learn how, see Browser requirements and troubleshooting tips.

  • Passwords expire every 90 days. (You will not be prompted with a reminder message. If your password doesn’t work, it has likely expired.)
  • Passwords cannot be reused. 
  • Passwords must be at least 14 characters and include:
    • one uppercase letter, 
    • one lowercase letter, and 
    • one number or special character.

If you still require assistance after following those steps and reviewing the information on our troubleshooting webpage, you can reset your password using the Forgot Password link on the log-in page. You can also retrieve your username if you’ve forgotten that.
