OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma State Senate voted this week to pass H.B. 1262, a bill to make home medical equipment tax exempt. Currently, HME is taxed between 9.3% and 10.5%, depending on the county. “It’s been a fantastic day for the DME industry and for the citizens of Oklahoma,” said Larry Dalton, president of the Oklahoma Medical Equipment Providers Association. “This bill will save the citizens money. This is a history-making day that we will not forget.” The bill takes effect July 1.
