No More City Sales and Use Tax for Picher, Oklahoma

  • Dec 27, 2013 | Gail Cole

 Goodbye Picher, Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma Tax Commission announced on December 16, 2013 that the town of Picher, Oklahoma, has been formally dissolved. As a result, city sales and use tax for the town of Picher (COPO 5822) will no longer be collected. The change takes effect immediately.

Sales in the former town of Picher are now only subject to the 1.35% Ottawa County sales and use tax rate and the 4.5% Oklahoma state sales and use tax rate.

In order to ensure that sales and use taxes previously collected for Picher are remitted to the Oklahoma Tax Commission, “the town of Picher will still remain active on the Quick Tax filing system, rate charts, and rate updates until March 31, 2014.”

Questions should be directed to Dave Francis, City/County Coordinator, at dfrancis@tax.ok.gov.
