We can expect to hear debate over a state income tax reform plan being run by Republican Senator Patrick Anderson of Enid.
He said his plan is to replace the current state tax code with a 2.95% flat tax.
Anderson said it's possible, if many tax credits are eliminated.
"If we got rid of all the gimmicks that re in our tax system, we could literally cut our tax rate almost in half," Anderson told KTOK.
But Democratic House Minority Leader Scott Inman of Del City fears it would shift the tax burden onto working Oklahomans.
"That would eliminate deductions for veterans, for senior citizens, for retirees, for single mothers and the child care tax credit. All of those would have to go," Inman told KTOK.
The issue of state's personal income tax is expected to be on the front-burner when the state Legislature convenes, February fourth.
