Consider ways to make Oklahoma City’s tax structure more stable, resilient, and balanced by exploring options such as:

  • Changing state law to allow property taxes to be used for local government operations.
  • Reducing the number of sales tax exemptions (which have increased in recent years).
  • Increasing the number of basic services subject to sales tax.
  • Taxation of internet sales to regain lost revenue while restoring the competitive imbalance suffered by local retailers.
  • Enhancing the stability of the local economy by supporting economic diversification.
