                           1998 Oklahoma Individual Income Tax
Dear Oklahoma Taxpayer,

Enclosed are the components you will need from the Oklahoma Tax Commission to file your 1998 income taxes with the State of
Oklahoma. This packet contains the forms necessary for a "resident" filing. To clarify whether you are a resident or non-resident,
please read the section entitled "Residence Defined" on page 4 of this packet.

As a resident of Oklahoma, you have several ways to file your 1998 income taxes. The forms enclosed in this booklet are 511 and
511EZ. The Form 511EZ is traditionally used for those who prefer a short form method and have a relatively simple filing. Also
available in this booklet is the Form 511, which is a longer form and allows for more complex information, such as multiple exclusions
and/or deductions. If you are interested in the option of electronically filing your Oklahoma tax return, visit an authorized tax preparer
location.

We realize everyone wants their refund as soon as possible. For the second straight year, the Oklahoma Tax Commission is offering
the option of having your refund direct deposited into your bank account. Information regarding this option is available on page 5.

If you have any questions about filing your Oklahoma income tax return, please call or visit us at one of the locations listed on the back
cover of this booklet. Our Taxpayer Assistance Division, available at all of our locations, is ready to assist you. Also, be sure and
visit our web site next time you are online. Our site address is www.oktax.state.ok.us. The option to e-mail us is also available on
the site as well as downloadable versions of income tax forms.

                                                All About Direct Deposit
        Why Use Direct Deposit?
                    You get your refund faster.
                    Payment is more secure as there is no check to get lost.
                    Convenience. No trip to the bank to deposit your check.
                    Saves tax dollars. A refund by direct deposit costs less than a check.


        Filling Out the Direct Deposit Box...
        Please complete the direct deposit box on the tax return if you want us to directly deposit the amount shown on the
        refund line of your return into your account at a bank or other financial institution instead of sending you a check.
        First, check the appropriate box as to whether the check will be going into a checking account or savings account.
        Next, fill out the routing number. The routing number must be nine digits. If the first two digits are not 01 through 12
        or 21 through 32, the direct deposit will be rejected and a check will be issued instead. Using the sample check
        shown below, the routing number is 120120012.
        Last, enter your account number.
