TULSA, OK (KWGS) - Oklahoma Watch reporter Warren Vieth has been following two legislative task forces that are currently examining the state's tax system. He has identified twelve tax credits that cost the state upwards of $170 million in lost revenue, which could be on the chopping block during the next legislative session. The tax breaks range from the credit on Oklahoma coal production, and historic building rehabilitation, to venture capital credits for rural Oklahoma companies, and wind energy development. Vieth is our guest on ST today.
