Oklahoma’s Tax System Called “Unfair”

By Marshall Stewart

Results from a new study claim Oklahoma’s tax system is unfair to the great majority of its’ citizens. The report, from the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy, finds low and middle-income Oklahomans pay over two times more in taxes as a percentage of income than the wealthiest residents. Gene Perry is with the Oklahoma Policy Institute. He says the state’s tax system is upside down.

Perry says the Governor and legislature keep pushing tax cuts for top earners, but they haven’t done a thing for Oklahomans who most need a break.
