Oklahoma: Veteran Exemption Amended

  • Jun 4, 2014 | Gail Cole

 Oklahoma: exemption for veterans expanded to household members.

At the beginning of 2013, the Oklahoma sales tax exemption allowed for 100% disabled veterans in Oklahoma was expanded to the surviving spouse of a deceased qualifying veteran, provided the surviving spouse did not remarry.

Now newly enacted legislation amends that sales tax exemption to include “the spouse of an eligible person or … a member of the household in which the eligible person resides.”

The Oklahoma Tax Commission “shall issue a separate exemption card” to such a spouse or member of the household “if requested by the eligible person.”

House Bill 3509 was approved by the governor on May 28, 2014, and took effect immediately.
