The state of Oklahoma offers a five year ad valorem property tax exemption for certain windpower generators.

An initial investment of $250,000 and an addition of $250,000 in annual payroll in counties with a population of 75,000 or less is required. If the company is located in a larger county, an additional annualized payroll of $1 million is required to file for the exemption. Windpower generators are exempt from the Oklahoma payroll requirement if there is an increase of $2 million or more in capitol improvements while maintaining or increasing payroll.

Property eligible to be exempt from tax may include land, buildings, improvements, machinery, fixtures, and equipment used directly and exclusively in the process of windpower generation on the facility site. Companies must apply for the exemption by March 15th for each year.

 More information on the windpower generator ad valorem property tax exemption can be found through the Oklahoma Tax Commission.
