Sales Tax Takes a Hike (just for the weekend)

Posted by: Greater Oklahoma City Chamber on Tuesday, July 31, 2012 at 12:00:00 am

Back to school season can put a pinch on your pocket book. Thankfully, Oklahoma's annual sales tax holiday is here to help out. This weekend, Aug. 3-5, will give you the chance to purchase clothing and shoes free of sales tax (including all state, city, county and local municipality sales tax). However, there is some fine print you should be aware of before you shop till you drop.

  • The sales tax holiday weekend begins at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 3 and ends at 12 midnight Sunday, Aug. 5.
  • Any item of clothing or footwear with a sales price of less than $100 per article is exempt of sales and use tax.
  • Things that don't qualify: any accessories or special clothing or footwear primarily designed for athletic activity or protective use or the rental of clothing or footwear. Also not included, belt buckles; costume masks; patches and emblems; sewing equipment and supplies, even when used to make clothing.
  • "Clothing" is defined as "human wearing apparel suitable for general use, including belts and suspenders; boots; coats and jackets, diapers, gloves and mittens; hats and caps; hosiery; insoles for shoes; raingear; scarves; shoes and shoe laces; socks; underwear; athletic and non-athletic uniforms and more."
  • Jewelry, handbags, luggage, umbrellas, wallets, watches, and other similar items carried on or about the human body, without regard to whether worn on the body in a manner characteristic are considered taxable.

For FAQs and other info on the Sales Tax Holiday, check out the Oklahoma Tax Commission.
