Two Oklahoma counties approved of sales tax
OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma: Two Oklahoma counties have approved tax increases that will help build new county jails. The new tax, which will raise sales tax by three-quarters of a cent, was approved by a 3-1 margin in the Oklahoma county of Caddo. Voters in Woodward County approved a five-eighths sales tax as well.
However, in another Oklahoma County, voters in McAlester rejected a similar sales tax proposal. The proposed sales tax would have help pay for improvements to water and sewer systems.
