The Oklahoma Legislature has approved a bill that would allow a municipality to engage in compliance activities to augment the collection of the municipality’s tax by the Oklahoma Tax Commission. If the legislation is enacted, a municipality would be permitted to contract with the commission for the municipality (directly or by contract with third-party private persons or entities) to engage in the compliance activities. The Streamlined Sales and Use Tax (SST) Agreement, of which Oklahoma is a full member, requires state-level administration of sales and use taxes as a condition for membership. The bill has been sent to the governor.
