Protecting your privacy online is very a high priority of the Oklahoma Tax Commission. The following policy statement outlines how your information will be handled by the Commission while using our services.
The Oklahoma Tax Commission collects the following information in order to measure the number of visitors to the different sections of our site and to help make our site more accessible and useful to visitors:
- The Internet Protocol Address. The Internet Protocol address is a numerical identifier assigned to either your Internet service provider or directly to your computer.
- The type of browser and operating system you used.
- The date and time you visited this site.
- The Web pages you accessed during your visit.
- The Web site which referred you to this site.
- Any words you used to search this site.
The recording of the above information does not tell us who is accessing our site, but rather how a visitor travels through our site. Information is used to determine what is of the most and least interest, times of peak usage, and missing or broken links. We use this information to provide the taxpayers of Oklahoma with the best possible information and taxation website.
Secure applications such as QuickTax, the Oklahoma Tax Commission’s business tax online filing system, provide the opportunity to create a PIN to access or submit personal information. You should not divulge your PIN to anyone. The Oklahoma Tax Commission will never ask you for your PIN in an unsolicited telephone call or e-mail. When you have finished with any PIN protected application, we recommend you exit the page.
