The Department of Revenue may not disclose to the public most of the taxpayer-related information it collects. This is because it is important proprietary information that has been designated confidential and privileged by the legislature.
There is a limited amount of taxpayer-related information that DOR may disclose, and most of it is available online at the following links:
Releasing confidential tax information
Records containing confidential tax information
can be disclosed only to the taxpayer or to a party authorized under the exemptions provided in RCW 82.32.330(3). If the taxpayer wants to share confidential tax information with another party, the taxpayer must submit a Confidential Tax Information Authorization
or a similar document containing required information.
