Oklahoma Disabled Veteran and Surviving Spouse Sales Tax Exemption: Oklahoma offers a sales tax exemption, including city and county sales tax, to eligible disabled Veterans for up to $25,000 and up to $1000 for Surviving Spouses.
Who is eligible for Oklahoma 100% Disabled Veteran Sales Tax Exemption? To be eligible disabled Veterans must be receiving compensation for a 100% service-connected permanent and total disability from the VA. The Surviving Spouse of an eligible Veteran must remain unremarried to qualify.

Pursuant to Senate Bill 415, effective November 1, 2021, all new applicants for the Disabled Veteran and Surviving Spouse Sales Tax Exemption are required to register in the Oklahoma Veterans Registry to verify eligibility. Veterans and Surviving Spouses previously awarded sales tax exempt status prior to November 1, 2021, must register no later than July 1, 2023, to remain eligible. The Oklahoma Department of Veterans Affairs will mail a letter that can then be uploaded to the Oklahoma Disabled Veteran Sales Tax Exemption Permit, Online Application (select “100% Disabled Veteran Exemption Permit").

That is all fine and good for those in the listed categories. In fact, I'm very happy to see such benefits for them.

That is kind of how I felt when I first "applied" for registration with the VA and was told that the wife and I made too much money to be eligible for VA health care. At the time, I saw way too many veterans near the VA center that were in way more need for medical care than myself. And, as far as I'm concerned, I still feel the same.

Such benefits as VA home loans and such are available to me, but not the health care. Maybe I need to go to Veteran's Corner near Riverwind Casino to see if anything can be done just to register me with the VA.

I work for VBA and deal with benefits like this. Oklahoma has some of the best benefits in the nation for disabled veterans that live in OK.

As far as healthcare, I don’t know much but I believe they got rid of the requirement regarding income. Also, if your service connected for anything, it also makes eligible, depending on the %.

I'll have to check up on that about the income. I have had two discussions with VA personnel in the past, and both gave me the same answer. The second one was just a year or two ago, so things might have changed.
