Ballot Text

STATE QUESTION NO. 741

LEGISLATIVE REFERENDUM NO. 344

This measure amends the Oklahoma Constitution. It would add a new Section 22A to Article 10. This section is related to exemptions from property taxes. It would require a person or business to file an application for an exemption. No exemption could be granted prior to filing an application. The Legislature may write laws to carry out the provisions of this section.[1]


Taxpayer Perspective

State Question No. 741 is a constitutional amendment that would require a person or business to file an application in order to be considered for a property tax exemption. Adding bureaucratic hassles to the tax burden already faced by small businesses could sap time that would be better spent on growing an operation.[2]
