⇒ Choctaw’s new sales tax rate would be 9.5%. Shawnee is 9.5%, MWC is 9.1% and OKC is 8.625%. On a $100 dollar purchase the sales tax for Choctaw and Shawnee would be $9.50, while MWC would be $9.10, and OKC would be $8.63.
If you compare the projected sales tax on a $100 purchase in Choctaw, which would equal $9.50, to a $100 purchase in say, Midwest City, which would equal $9.10, there is only a 40-cent difference. That doesn't include the cost of gas to drive there as opposed to staying in Choctaw.
