Cahill Prevails: Oklahoma Supreme Court Denies Review of Favorable Ruling for Cable One against Oklahoma Tax Commission by the Oklahoma Court of Civil Appeals

Date: 10/03/17

On September 25, 2017, the Oklahoma Supreme Court denied review of a Cahill victory in the Court of Civil Appeals of the State of Oklahoma, which ruled Cable One does not meet the statutory definition of a transmission company. This ruling is a significant victory for cable television companies operating in Oklahoma; the introduction of interconnected Voice over Internet Protocol (“VoIP”) service to subscribers does not trigger a reclassification of a company as a transmission company for tax purposes in the State of Oklahoma.
