Use Tax

Use tax is a tax paid on goods purchased outside the State of Oklahoma where the tax was not charged in another state. The most common example is when something is purchased from an out-of-state mail order company. If the mail order company does not collect the Oklahoma tax, the Oklahoma resident is responsible for remitting this tax. The use tax rate in the City of Sallisaw matches the sales tax rate.
