Tax Resources Available Online at
State’s Official Web Site, http://www.OK.gov

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – March 4, 2009 – The tax season deadline is fast approaching and the Oklahoma Tax Commission and OK.gov want to remind Oklahomans that help is available online. Visit http://www.OK.gov, Oklahoma’s Official Web site, to gain access to valuable tax information and resources.

“Oklahomans have many options available to them on our Web site when it comes to filing their income tax returns,” said Paula Ross, Tax Commission spokesperson.

The Oklahoma Tax Commission Web site provides information, answers to frequently asked questions, and several options, including Free File for those who qualify, on e-filing of income tax returns.

“We encourage electronic filing. It enables faster refunds and more accurate returns,” continued Ross. ”With electronic filing, Oklahomans can receive their refund within seven to ten days, less with direct deposit, as opposed to paper filing which can take eight to ten weeks of processing time.”

The online resource site, available at http://www.ok.gov/about/tax_resource.html, comprises a number of resources from the Oklahoma Tax Commission and Internal Revenue Service to assist Oklahomans with filing their 2008 Income Tax Return before the April 15 deadline. The site has direct links to Oklahoma’s free e-file options, downloadable forms, Oklahoma accountant directory, free income tax assistance information, and other valuable contact information and resources.

The Online Tax Resources Site is a product of a partnership between the Oklahoma Tax Commission and OK.gov, Oklahoma’s Official Web site managed by the eGovernment firm, NIC Inc. (NASDAQ: EGOV).
