The amount of property tax owed by homeowners in Oklahoma depends on their assessed amount and cumulative tax rate. Taxable value is based on market value but not inherently equal to it. Through an annual review, county assessors evaluate the market value of land in their jurisdictions. Most reviews are not carried out in person but are based on recent sales of similar assets. Assessors are only allowed to visit any property once every four years physically.


For residential homestead and farmland, annual increases in a property's assessed value are capped at 3 percent. Any other property has a 5 percent limit.

Oklahoma's tax rates are set in every county and city by several tax authorities and then totaled for each district. Rates rely on budgetary needs, but increases are typically subject to the approval of voters. Rates are set as mills, with $1 in taxes per $1,000 in taxable value equal to one mill. A mill rate of 90 mills will suggest taxes of $900 on a home with a taxable value of $10,000.
