OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – A bill to stop the fraudulent use of the disabled veterans sales tax exemption has been signed into law.

According to the Oklahoma Tax Commission, Oklahoma currently has twice as many military tax-exempt certificates as 100% disabled veterans in the state.

Sen. Frank Simpson has filed Senate Bill 415, which authorizes the agency to disclose taxpayer information to the Oklahoma Department of Veterans Affairs relating to 100% service-disabled veterans who qualify for the tax exemption.

Veterans will be required to register with the Oklahoma Veterans Registry to remain qualified for the sales tax exemption. The measure will also require the ODVA to verify eligibility for the sales tax exemption upon the OTC’s request.

The bill was signed into law by Gov. Stitt on Wednesday.
