Effective October 1, 2018, a Direct Wine Shippers Permit is required for making on-site and off-site wine sales and shipments to consumers in Oklahoma. The cost for the initial permit is $300 with subsequent renewals costing $150 per year.
- Once a winery has registered with the ABLE Commission for a Direct Wine Shippers Permit, the Commission will notify the Oklahoma Tax Commission and the Oklahoma Tax Commission will then notify the winery of the requirements for receiving a Direct Wine Shipper (Tax) Permit and a Vendor Use Tax Permit.
- Beginning July 15, 2019, a winery should complete the online business registration application.
