Sales and Use Tax in Washington

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.
