I'm not sure what sort of "red tape" you're concerned about. Oklahoma has relatively few business regulations, so, as a general rule, there's very little involved in operating a retail business in Oklahoma. If you tell me what sort of business you are contemplating, I can provide some additional details.
I hope I've answered your question. Please let me know if you require further clarification. And, please provide a positive feedback rating for my answer -- otherwise, I receive nothing for my efforts in your behalf.
Thanks again for using Justanswer!
