Deadline Extended for REALTOR® License Plate
The OK Tax Commission has extended the deadline for the REALTOR® License Plate until February 29. OAR still needs 125 orders to reach the minimum 500 applications needed to produce the plates. The cost for the license plate is just $37, and since $20 of each license plate fee would be donated to the Oklahoma Housing Foundation, the license plate would generate at least $10,000 for this worthy cause. You do not have to actually put the license plate on your car, you can buy one to support the cause and keep your current plate.
