WAC 239 Sales to nonresidents of farm machinery or implements, and related services.
WAC:   7/10/2009 WAC 458-20-239 (Rule 239) explains the retail sales tax exemption provided by RCW 82.08.0268 for sales to nonresidents of farming machinery and implements, parts for farming machinery and implements, and related labor and services.
The Department has amended Rule 239 to:
Eliminate language in subsection (2)(b) explaining that prior to June 11, 1998, the exemption was limited to parts and did not include repair services;
Add the term “driver’s license” in subsection (2)(c) as an example of what constitutes acceptable proof that a buyer is a nonresident;
In subsection (2)(d): 1) replace the reference to identify the “Buyer’s Retail Sales Tax Exemption Certificate” with the “Farmers’ Retail Sales Tax Exemption Certificate," which is the certificate currently used to document an exempt sales claim; and (2) update the explanation of how to obtain a blank exemption certificate.
