You can subtract the amount of contributions made to and interest earned from your Oklahoma Medical Savings Account (MSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA) from your adjusted gross income. In order to qualify for this subtraction your MSA or HSA program must be approved by either the State Department of Health or the Insurance Commissioner.

- Agricultural Commodity Processing Facility Exclusion:
Owners of agricultural commodity processing facilities may exclude 15% of their investment in a new or expanded agricultural commodity processing facility located within Oklahoma.

The investment is deemed made when the property is placed in service. Under no circumstances shall this exclusion lower your taxable income below zero. In the event the exclusion does exceed income, any unused portion may be carried over for a period not to exceed six years.
A schedule must be enclosed showing the type of investment(s), the date placed in service, and the cost. If the total exclusion available isn't used, a copy of the schedule must be enclosed in the carryover year and show the total exclusion available, the amount previously used and amount available in the carryover year. If the exclusion is through a Partnership or S corporation, the schedule must also include the Partnership's or S corporation's name and ID number and your pro-rata share of the exclusion.
