Note: This post refers to legislation from the 2022 legislative session.
Oklahoma lawmakers this session are considering a measure (House Bill 3353) that would strengthen the value of Oklahoma’s Sales Tax Relief Credit — commonly known as the “grocery tax credit” — to provide meaningful, targeted relief to the Oklahomans who most need it.
Oklahoma’s Sales Tax Relief Credit, which stands at $40 per person in a qualifying household, has not been adjusted since its creation more than 30 years ago. HB 3353 proposes to increase the credit from $40 to $180 per person and slightly increase the qualifying income limits with a phase-out.
The interactive map below shows county-by-county the impacts of the expanded credit, including how many Oklahoma families would see a tax reduction, the number of newly eligible households getting the credit for the first time, and the number of households with seniors who would save on their grocery sales tax.
