Sales Tax

Sales Tax

Oklahoma is the only state where municipalities rely primarily on sales tax collections to fund city government operations.


The City of Stillwater is primarily funded by sales taxes 

Sales tax revenue makes up most of the General Fund, which pays for the City’s day-to-day operations. Other sources of revenue include use tax, property tax, hotel/motel tax and utility revenues.
