Sales and Use Tax in Washington

January 26

Gain a better understanding of Washington's sales and use tax impact on your company to ensure that you are compliant.

Washington sales tax rates are among the highest in the country, topping out at nearly ten percent. As a result, any errors in sales or use tax reporting can be quite costly to companies with Washington operations or customers within the state. Add in the state's substantial budget shortfall and aggressive revenue auditors and you can understand why it is critical for finance and tax departments to have a good understanding of their Washington obligations. This topic will cover many of the unique aspects of Washington sales and use tax laws and some of the common pitfalls and mistakes that taxpayers often make.

Learning Objectives

- You will be able to define the types of transactions that are subject to sales tax in Washington, as well as common exemptions from tax.

- You will be able to describe the notable recent developments in Washington sales tax law.

- You will be able to discuss the Washington sales/use tax audit process and how to prepare for an audit.

- You will be able to explain who is a responsible party for Washington sales tax purposes and what their obligations are.
