Oklahoma Sales Tax Holiday Set for August 7-9, 2009
Beginning at 12:01 am on Friday, August 7, 2009, and ending at twelve midnight on Sunday, August 9, 2009, Oklahoma will hold its third annual sales tax holiday giving shoppers the opportunity to purchase certain clothing and shoes free of sales tax. This includes state, city, county and local municipality sales taxes.
“The sales tax holiday provides Oklahomans with the ability to save money on clothing and other items which are included while supporting their local retailers,” said Paula Ross, Oklahoma Tax Commission spokesperson.
Retailers are required to participate and may not charge tax on items that are legally tax-exempt during the sales tax holiday. The sales tax holiday exempts the sale of clothing and shoes priced at less than $100 from sales taxes.
For more information and answers to common questions on the sales tax holiday, as well as a listing of sales tax exempt items please refer to the Oklahoma Tax Commission website at www.tax.ok.gov.
