The Stillwater Taxpayer Receipt tool creates an estimate of the sales taxes you pay and shows you what they fund. It is a common misconception that property taxes help pay for the City’s core services. Although this is true in many states, cities and towns in Oklahoma like Stillwater are not allowed to levy property taxes for day-to-day operations. Sales tax in Stillwater is 8.813%, and the City receives 3.5% of that. After receiving your unofficial taxpayer receipt, visit our interactive budget simulation called Balancing Act to learn more and to provide your budget input to your elected and city officials.
