OTC Tools Available for Calculating Sales and Use Tax
Ever wondered if the sales tax charged on your catalog purchase or utility bill is correct? The Oklahoma Tax Commission has an online tool for calculating Oklahoma sales and use taxes from any address or zip code in the State of Oklahoma.
“Most vendors are already aware of this system and are using it to assist in calculating sales taxes,” said Paula Ross, Oklahoma Tax Commission spokesperson. “However we want taxpayers to know this system is available for their use also in verifying the applicable sales taxes for their residence.”
The Sales and Use Tax Rate Locator System has been available on the Agency’s website for several years. There are two methods for researching a tax rate: by address or by zip code.
To access the Locator System, visit the Oklahoma Tax Commission’s website at www.tax.ok.gov and select the system from the “Quick Click” menu.
If you are incorrectly charged and need substantiation of the rate, a printable version is available or you may print the screen. This verification may be submitted to your retailer as proof of the correct rate.
If you need assistance or have further questions, please email the Oklahoma Tax Commission at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also call the Agency’s Taxpayer Assistance Division at (405) 521-3160 or in-state toll free (800) 522-8165.
