An Oklahoma Think Tank, The Oklahoma Academy, is recommending the state reconsider how it collects taxes. The group is a statewide, private, nonpartisan research and catalyst organization that focuses on public policy issues that have a direct impact on the state. It develops policy and community recommendations through town hall conferences.
The organization is making several recommendations including:
- broadening the sales tax base by including personal and professional services,
- lowering the sales tax rate;
- retroactive sunset provisions on all sales tax exemptions.
