- May 23, 2017 | Gail Cole
Several local sales and use tax rate changes are set to take effect in Oklahoma on July 1, 2017. All are in sparsely populated towns.
New use tax
Earlsboro, in Pottawatomie County, will impose a new 3% use tax. The town currently has a population of about 630, down considerably from its peak of 1,950 in 1930. According to a 1959 article in the Daily Oklahoman, Earlsboro is “the town that whisky built and oil broke.”
Sales and use tax rate increases
North Miami will increase its sales tax by 0.5%, to 3.5%. This won’t affect too many people, as North Miami has a population of 382 (give or take a few).
Sperry, which has a population of approximately 1,250, will increase its sales and use tax by 0.6%, to 3.6%. Additional information.
