Oklahoma Tax Commission
Statistics show a lack of knowledge concerning tax laws, rules and procedures is the major reason for
delinquencies among businesses. For this reason, the Oklahoma Tax Commission believes every person in
Oklahoma should receive instruction regarding ownership responsibilities, including the collection, remittance
and payment of Oklahoma business taxes before actually starting a new business.
The Oklahoma Tax Commission provides free workshops to provide this vital information. It is also the goal
of the workshops to instruct existing businesses on proper business registration, tax reporting, tax bookkeeping
and tax exemptions.
The Oklahoma Tax Commission conducts these workshops in Oklahoma City, Tulsa and other locations
throughout the state as needed, on a monthly basis. The workshops last approximately three hours and focus
on the following topics:
1. New Business Registration
2. Business Tax Reporting Form Completion
3. Sales and Withholding Record Keeping Requirements
4. Sales Tax Deductions, Exemptions and Vendor Responsibilities
Interested persons should contact the Oklahoma Tax Commission at (405)521-3160 for information con-
cerning workshop schedules and to make a reservation. You may also visit our website at
for additional information regarding workshop locations, start times and other pertinent information concerning
starting a new business.
To insure we have adequate space, please make a workshop reservation.

OTC Rules Regarding Manufacturing...
“Manufacturing” means and includes the activity of converting or conditioning tangible personal
property by changing the form, composition, or quality of character of some existing material or materials,
including natural resources, by procedures commonly regarded by the average person as manufacturing,
compounding, processing or assembling, into a material or materials with a different form or use.
“Manufacturing” does not include extractive industrial activities such as mining, quarrying, logging,

“Manufacturing operation” means the designing, manufacturing, compounding, processing,

administration, sales, distribution, transportation, site construction, or site maintenance. Extractive activities
and eld processes shall not be deemed to be a part of a manufacturing operation even when performed

in the manufacturing operation, as dened in this Section, or in waste disposal activities resulting from the
manufacturing operations.
(11) “Transportation” means to move or carry tangible personal property to a manufacturing site, prior
to the time it enters into the manufacturing process, and to move or carry, tangible personal property from
a manufacturing site, after such property leaves the manufacturing operation. The term “transportation”

transportation equipment.
(b) Activities included in manufacturing operations. Purchases by a manufacturer of tangible personal
property or services for use in a manufacturing operation are exempt from sales and use taxes in Oklahoma.
Operations performed by a sub-contractor to the manufacturer may also qualify as a manufacturing operation
if the contractor is performing sub-assembly work leading to completion of the nished product. Activities
included in a manufacturing operation include the following:

(1) Items purchased for use, or manufactured and withdrawn from inventory and used, in the areas of
administration, distribution, sales, site construction, site maintenance, or transportation, are subject to sales
tax if the items are purchased or withdrawn from an inventory in Oklahoma. If tangible personal property is
purchased or withdrawn from inventory outside Oklahoma, to be used in Oklahoma for these non-exempt
purposes, it is subject to use tax. The amount of tax due is computed based upon the “sales value,” of the
goods withdrawn, as dened in OAC 710:65-1-2.
Goods, wares, merchandise, property, machinery and equipment, used in a non-manufacturing activity
or process as set forth in paragraph 9 of
Section 1352 of Title 68 of the Oklahoma Statutes
shall not be
eligible for the exemption
described in this Section
by virtue of the activity or process being performed in
conjunction with or integrated into a manufacturing operation.
[68 O.S.Supp.2003, § 1359(1)]
(d) Predominant use. Incidental use of otherwise qualifying items or machinery predominantly used in the
manufacturing operation will not result in disqualication:
(1) Where an item is predominantly used in the manufacturing operation, any non-exempt use will be
considered incidental, and will not disqualify the item from the exemption.
(2) Where electricity or natural gas is metered through a single meter, and the predominant use is in the
manufacturing operation, any remaining usage will be considered incidental, and will be exempt.
(e) Applicability of examples. Items enumerated in Subsections (b) and (c) are examples and illustrations
only, and are not intended to be exclusive or exhaustive.
(a) A manufacturer may sell tangible personal property it manufactures, exempt from sales tax, to a person
who immediately takes the manufactured item outside Oklahoma for immediate and exclusive use outside
Oklahoma. Provided however, that sales at a retail outlet shall not qualify for the exemption.
(b) In order to qualify for this exemption, the purchaser must give a written statement to the manufacturer-
seller that the property will leave the State and will not be used in Oklahoma.
(c) For purposes of this section, “retail outlet” means any place where sales of tangible personal property
are made in small quantities to ultimate consumers to meet personal needs, rather than for commercial or
industrial uses of the articles sold.
