This is cyber Monday. It is a big day for internet sales.  But, if you buy on line, remember you still owe sales tax.

Paula Ross is with the Oklahoma Tax Commission. She says if the merchant does collect the tax, you can go on line and pay it,  or wait and claim it on your income tax.  Ross says there are ways the state can track your internet purchases.

Research firm comScore suggests it will be a big online success, with Americans expected to spend $1.5 billion, up 20 percent from last year.

Retailers have ramped up their deals to get shoppers to click on their websites.
