Governor Mary Fallin
(Has she morphed into just another “Tax & Spend” Liberal??)
(Fallin is proposing to slap a sales tax on services that have never been taxed in the history of the State of Oklahoma !! And she is doing it at the very time when many Oklahomans are seeing their job security dwindling !! She sure knows how to "kick a horse when it is down" !!)

Rich States, Poor States demonstrates that in the long term, if coupled with appropriate spending reform, the much-maligned state tax cuts will yield positive results.

Oklahoma currently has the 6th highest combined state & local sales tax rate in the country !! Now, David Boren has proposed that we raise the tax rate to the highest in the country !!! (I suspect Boren’s best years are behind him !!)

2015 State Business Tax Climate Index
The Tax Foundation’s State Business Tax Climate Index enables business leaders, government policymakers, and taxpayers to gauge how their states’ tax systems compare. While there are many ways to show how much is collected in taxes by state governments, the Index is designed to show how well states structure their tax systems, and provides a road-map to improving these structures.

Competitive Fee Structure
… but if you are looking for the cheapest fees, or obesssing about your correct pronouns or global warming, you are probably best served by looking elsewhere…
… in addition, due to an extremely busy workload, if it is absolutely critical to have a rapid turnaround in your work & you are inclined to make repeated calls to check on the status, someone else would probably suit you better …
New tax clients are expected to provide copies of their last 3 years of tax returns and provide permission to contact prior accountant to resolve any issues, if necessary.
Regretfully, I am unable to accept new clients who have unfiled prior-year’s tax returns, who are not current with all prior tax obligations, are involved in any marijuana-related business ventures, use marijuana, have any income from gambling, are experiencing extreme financial difficulties, are personal-injury attorneys or copyright or patent trolls. Newly formed businesses are frowned upon as well.
Though not required, supporters of President Donald J. Trump, the National Rifle Association & clients who are cheerful, optimistic and NOT easily offended are generally preferred.
Absolutely NO LAZY, ECONOMICALLY ILLITERATE, GODLESS, RIOTING, KNEELING, SOCIALIST VANDALS allowed beyond the front door, however!
Due to the alleged gang activity and drug dealing at the nearby Chelsea Manor Apts. & 7-11 Convenience Store, I would personally recommend "packing some heat" while in this area (and perhaps Penn Square Mall as well). Some believe the OKC Police Dept. has become wussified and are too intimidated to confront these gangbangers and put them behind bars where they rightfully belong. "Talk on the Street" seems to be that the wussification emanates from an extremely weak & naive Mayor who purportedly suffers from a severe case of "Low T," a weak City Manager, a new, effeminate-looking Police Chief, who refuses to enforce our nation's immigration laws & a Ward 6 Council Girl who took her Oath Of Office using a book on Marxism.

The NRA extends our deepest sympathies to the victims and the families of the White Settlement, TX church shooting. We would also like to thank Jack Wilson for his quick and heroic actions. Jack is a hero. Indeed, America is a great country because of selfless patriots like Jack and others like him. Thank you, Jack. Your courage saved many lives.

✅ An #ArmedCitizen saved multiple lives last night in #OKC. We hope this serves as a wake-up call for @GovMaryFallin, who just two weeks ago vetoed a constitutional carry bill. Just another example of how the best way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. #2A pic.twitter.com/kPRjpiyeow— NRA (@NRA) May 25, 2018

This is America. We eat meat, we say the pledge of allegiance, we love guns, we hate socialism, we stand for the flag, we kneel for the fallen and to praise God. If any of that offends you, too bad. #TeamTomi #Defend2A #gunrights

Make The University of Oklahoma Great Again!
(Let us return to the time before the “Loudmouth Communist Snowflakes” and the less than competent financial administrators arrived on campus)
At the University of Oklahoma, the researchers found there were nearly nine registered Democrats for every one Republican on the faculty, and faculty gave $2 in campaign contributions to Democrats for every $1 given to Republicanshttps://t.co/l4Pzb3b5Q9— Greg Karnes (@realGregKarnes) February 2, 2020
