Oklahoma State Tax Guide
State tax rates and rules for income, sales, property, fuel, cigarette, and other taxes that impact Oklahoma residents.
One of the first things Oklahoma residents might notice about taxes in their state is an income tax schedule that puts most people in the state's highest bracket. But, on the bright side, at least the rates just dropped starting with the 2022 tax year.
Oklahoma also has one of the highest combined state and local sales tax rates in the nation, at an average of 8.97%. Both groceries and clothing are subject to sales tax, too.
Oklahoma falls right in the middle when the median property tax rates for all 50 states are compared. That helps soften the impact of Oklahoma's other main taxes. Fuel taxes are really low in the state, too.
