This Great Plains state is characterized by picturesque prairies and small mountains. Oklahoma has more Native American residents than any other state; more than 25 Native American languages are spoken here. The two largest cities, Oklahoma City and Tulsa, are home to more than two thirds of Oklahomans.
Historically, the state served as an important cattle drive route and a destination for settlers from the eastern states after the territory was opened to homesteaders in 1889. Today, Oklahoma is a major natural gas, oil, and wheat producer.
Within Oklahoma, sales tax is collected on most sales of coins, paper currency, and precious metals. There is one exemption: bullion stored at a recognized precious metal depository. Under Oklahoma tax law 710:65-13-95 (http://www.tax.ok.gov/rules/Rules2012/Chapter%2065%20Sales%20and%20Use%20Tax%20_2_.pdf), which was introduced in 2011, the exemption applies to gold, silver, platinum, palladium, or other bullion stored at a depository. The bullion must have a value dependent on its precious metal content, not its form.
Meanwhile, Oklahoma state law specifically identifies other coins and numismatic items as taxable. Under 710:65-19-50 (http://www.tax.ok.gov/rules/Rules2012/Chapter%2065%20Sales%20and%20Use%20Tax%20_2_.pdf), “Coins, commemorative or otherwise, purchased at rates not reflecting actual currency value” are subject to the sales tax.
Oklahoma has some of the highest sales and use taxes in the country. The state sales tax rate is 4.5%. There are also city and county taxes in many areas; in some areas, the combined sales tax rate is as high as 11%. For this reason, many Oklahoma investors make an effort to purchase qualified bullion and store it at a depository so that it is exempt from the tax.
