Jeff Bezos has via his company Amazon filed with the Supreme Court seeking a decision that would relieve him of sales tax obligations to States in America?
The (federal) Marketplace Fairness Act http://www.marketplacefairness.org/what-is-the-marketplace-fairness-act/ would require that online sales tax collections be drawn for all online sales nationwide. Some states are applying their own State tax laws, and this has generated ire from Amazon and others.
Though there are many views of what is going on with this issue, this link cites (http://inthereddest.com/?tag=sales-tax) 185-225 million lost annually per the Oklahoma State Tax Commission.

The viewpoint of two Oklahoma Congressmen on same is here http://www.tulsaworld.com/article.aspx/Senate_OKs_Internet_sales_tax_pro.... Governor Mary Fallin http://www.ok.gov/governor/ not only has no plans to call for collections of the years of existing sales tax due, but is not promoting a starting point for collections to begin.
As Oklahoma is considered to be a "cash strapped state" decisions such as this could make a huge difference, from Oklahoma's elected officials. http://stateimpact.npr.org/oklahoma/tag/internet-tax/
But also other ongoing, perceived unsolveable Oklahoma problems have their roots in failure to act on the constitutional laws of the State of Oklahoma in these failed collections. This early 2013 video presentation from Oklahoma Ward2 City Councilor https://www.facebook.com/EdShadid , Dr. Ed Shadid http://vimeo.com/60985026 provides a clear illustration of failed infrastructure that is retained by this kind of failed linkage in law, policy and procedure.
