Oklahoma: New Sales Taxes Must Have Purpose


 There must be a reason for them.

Any county in Oklahoma may levy a sales tax of up to 2%, provided that “every sales tax levy submitted to county voters for approval shall embrace but one subject, which shall be clearly expressed on the ballot.”

Under House Bill 1400, which limits a new local sales tax to one subject, “’one subject’ shall mean a ballot with only one sales tax levy for a specified purpose but may include multiple projects for that purpose.”
