Oklahoma Property Tax Updates

UPDATED march 2020

Changes to Deadlines Due to COVID-19

On March 27, 2020, the Supreme Court of Oklahoma issued an order that closed all 77 county courthouses, cancelled all jury terms and suspended all deadlines and procedures through May 15, 2020. Aside from matters that can be worked on by agreement, all District Court and Appellate Court tax cases are on hold until May 15th. The Supreme Court is expected to issue further directives in the near future.

Additionally, on March 24, 2020, Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt and State Auditor Cindy Byrd made a “recommendation” that all Oklahoma county treasurers extend the second half ad valorem tax payment deadlines from March 31st to April 30, 2020. In this request, the Governor and State Auditor cited 68 O.S. § 2913(G), which states the “county treasurers may waive penalties and interest in any case” where the failure to timely remit was due “through no fault of the taxpayer.” Since Governor Stitt’s recommendation, the Oklahoma County Treasurer and most treasurers across Oklahoma have stated they will not charge penalties and interest for late property tax payments until April 30, 2020.
