David Blatt, executive director of the Oklahoma Policy Institute, a non-partisan think tank, suggests that doing away with the deduction would be a good place to again look for revenue.

According to Blatt, the deduction primarily benefits higher-income Oklahomans. Taxpayers with incomes above $200,000 a year represent less than 3 percent of all Oklahoma households, he said, yet they claimed a full 75.4 percent of the deduction for state income taxes.
On the other side, almost two-thirds of Oklahoma households (65.7 percent) have income under $50,000, yet this population accounted for just 6.8 percent of the deduction on state income taxes. Eliminating it would garner $97 million for the state, he estimated.
Blatt said he thinks fear of the political ramifications of tax hikes is what's keeping the lawmakers from touching the issue. "Even though nobody can point to the public policy served by the deduction," he said, "it's sort of part of the conversation, but doesn't seem to get pushed into the final discussion."
