Oklahoma Raises the Stakes For Sales Tax Exemption Certificate ...
The Sooner State legislature has just incentivized Oklahoma vendors to pay a little more attention to management of their customer’s sales tax exemption certificates.   From a political angle, this issue bubbled up in the context of veterans groups and the sales tax exemptions they typically are in possession of.  But the expanse of the final legislation (signed into law 6-7-10) provides penalties for non-compliant transactions with any holder of a sales tax exemption certificate.

Lifting the sales tax exemption on alcohol sold at package stores would raise $80 million, senators said. They said the money would be used to help offset deep cuts in services for the poor elderly and ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

WikiAnswers - How do you get tax exemption for a sole ...
Lawyers, accountants, business consultants, etc., etc., are NOT tax exempt. (Either sales tax or income).

A sole proprietorship is a person using a business name. In itself, it doesn't change the taxability of anything. The answer above is absolutely correct based on ...
