Sales and Use Tax News

These are gleanings from newsletters, etc. I have not included all of the events, nor have I provided much detail. As usual, the disclaimer applies - check this kind of thing out yourself. I just want to give you a heads-up.


Since manufacturers are starting to offer money-back guarantees, it's worth while taking a careful look at what the rules are. In WA, unless ALL of the purchase price is refunded, including the sales taxes, retailers can't get that money back from the state. Apparently this isn't always the case if the sale included dealer add-ons like undercoating, etc. While WA has clarified the rule, this is probably going to become more of an issue in other states pretty quickly. Be ahead of the curve here.


They have a "gasoline retailers' voluntary compliance program" which sounds a lot like a tax amnesty. It runs through 11/16.

They have some new exemptions and rule changes including stricter requirements placed on ag dealers - they just can't take the farmer's word for it.

New Orleans has a tax amnesty running through 12/4/09
