"MORE TAX IS NOT OK" Say No to the "Service Tax"

This petition had 1,680 supporters

Governor Mary Fallin is proposing to add brand-new taxes to Oklahoma's local service industries to make up "budget shortfalls" which will be an exponential financial burden on Oklahoma residents and businesses.  These new taxes will be placed on services which will thereby be faced with passing the new financial burden on all Oklahomans.  

  • A new tax on services will trickle down to all of the Oklahoma residences paying for local services. All of these companies already provide tax income to Oklahoma when purchasing products and supplies to service their customer's needs. 
  • A new tax on services will be a burden for customers and businesses alike by creating more costs for regular needs like pest control, handy men, plumbers, heat and air services, etc.
  • When a new tax is introduced, that tax can be unjustly enlarged disproportionately time and time again to make up "budget shortfalls."

Governor Fallin has already struck a deal with Amazon to start taxing what used to be enjoyed as tax-free shopping on the internet. 

     Please sign this petition now to rein in these burdensome taxes which Oklahoma is trying to over-reach into the taxpayer's pockets to settle its budget shortfalls.

                   Let our leaders know that MORE TAX IS NOT OK!
