Oklahoma Cities Show Increased Sales Tax
- Feb 13, 2012 | Susan McLain
Oklahoma cities are seeing an increase in sales tax receipts for end of December revenues. In Bartlesville, the February tax revenues received were over $1.5 million. The city’s local sales tax is 3 percent. This amount shows an increase of 4 percent over last year’s February sales tax revenue.
Other communities “…showed mixed results when comparing Oklahoma Tax Commission sales reports year over year.” There was a 108.20 percent increase in the City of Copan; while Ramona saw a 28.16 percent increase. These increases in local municipalities were not reflected in every small town community. The cities of Dewey and Ochelata saw decreases of 1.35 percent and 24.38 percent from last year’s revenue.
