Oklahoma discusses employer’s liability to withhold tax

The Oklahoma Tax Commission has issued a letter ruling stating that an employer (Texas Corporation) is not required to withhold Oklahoma personal income tax of its employee, a resident of Oklahoma, for work done in Texas as long as the corporation does not do business in or derive any income from sources in Oklahoma.
