Garage sales no bargain for state tax coffers

Updated:
Figures by the Oklahoma Tax Commission show garage sales from last year contributed just over $1.5-million in sales taxes, that's not very much.

The state sales tax is about 4 percent. Officials the problem is enforcing the tax. The commission has no audits to show what garage sales take in beyond what's reported.

In larger cities like Tulsa, the state relies on local authorities to regulate when and how often garage sales are held. In Oklahoma City, a permit is required to have a garage sale.
