State tax deduction or credit for contributions:

Contributions to Oklahoma's 529 plans, including rollover contributions, of up to $10,000 per year for an individual taxpayer, and up to $20,000 per year for a married couple filing jointly, are deductible in computing Oklahoma taxable income, with a five-year carryforward of excess contributions. Contribution deadline is April 15 of the following year.

State tax recapture provisions:

The principal portion of nonqualified withdrawals from this plan, and of rollovers to another 529 plan within one year of the date of contribution, are included in Oklahoma taxable income to the extent of prior Oklahoma tax deductions. A nonqualified withdrawal or rollover in the same year as the contribution will reduce the amount eligible for the Oklahoma deduction. A nonqualified withdrawal or rollover during the five-year carryover period will reduce the amount of any carryover deduction. Nonqualified withdrawals for this purpose do not include withdrawals made as the result of the beneficiary's death or disability or withdrawals made on account of the beneficiary's receipt of a scholarship.

Qualified distributions from Oklahoma and non-Oklahoma 529 plans are exempt.
