A. Residents: Generally, all residents of Oklahoma, regardless of income level, are required to file Form 511.

B. Part-Year Residents: Individuals who lived in Oklahoma for part of the year may need to file Form 511-NR (Nonresident/Part-Year Individual Income Tax Return).

C. Exceptions: There are a few exceptions to filing requirements. For example, if you were a full-time student with minimal income, you may not be required to file. Always consult the Oklahoma Tax Commission website or a tax professional for specific guidance.
