Oklahoma Tax Free Weekend 2016 is scheduled for August 5th through 7th, 2016.

The Oklahoma Sales Tax Holiday 2016 applies to the following items:

  • Clothing and shoes
  • Priced under $100

Oklahoma Tax Free Weekend 2016:

In addition, be careful not to overspend just because the tax free weekend is going on in your area. The regular sales tax rate in Oklahoma is 4.5%, so that’s how much money you’d be saving – along with your local sales tax, if applicable. By shopping around, and also using coupons, you might find that the items you’re looking for are less expensive either before the tax free weekend or after it takes place.

Certain clothing and shoe purchases under $100 are exempt from sales tax for this time period only.

Any qualifying items that are put on layaway during the exemption period and purchased after the period ends will not qualify for a tax exempt.

Internet purchases will be exempted if a person pays for the item and has it delivered to them during the exemption period.
