A person convicted of a felony shall not be permitted to file a claim for sales tax relief for any year for which that person is an inmate in the custody of the Department of Corrections for any part of that year.
Credit for Taxes Paid to Another State
A resident Oklahoma taxpayer who receives income for personal services performed in another state must report the full amount of such income on their Oklahoma return. If the other state taxes this same income as well, the resident may qualify for this credit. A part-year resident who recieves income from personal services performed in another state while an Oklahoma resident must report the full amount of such income. If another state taxes this income, the part-year resident may qualify for this credit.
Note: TaxSlayer will automatically calculate this credit for your Resident Oklahoma return when you add the Nonresident return for the other state return to your account. For Part-Year Oklahoma returns that have income taxed in Oklahoma and another state, you will need to manually enter the required information asked of you within your Oklahoma Part-Year return.
