Oklahoma Motor Vehicle Division Director Roy Dockum updated dealers on state motor vehicle taxes as well as the state budget situation during the Oklahoma RV Association (ORVA) Convention in Shawnee on June 19.
Oklahomans buying vehicles will now have to pay a 1.25 percent sales tax, but the change will be reviewed by the state’s Supreme Court next month, Dockum said.
To kick off the event, ORVA President Cliff Lewis of Lewis RV Center introduced Robert Floyd of Floyd’s RV, who paid tribute to his late father and former RVDA Chairman Rex Floyd, who passed away this month.
In addition to being a national RV dealer leader, Rex Floyd served as president of the local Central Oklahoma RV Dealers Association.
Other speakers included RVDA’s Phil Ingrassia and RVIA’s Jay Landers, who provided industry updates. Randy Sobel of Sobel University and Bill Koster of Protective conducted education workshops.
