SOURCE DOCUMENT DETER. NO DATE OF ISSUE DESCRIPTION
WAC: 458-20-24001A   10/14/2010  WAC 458-20-24001 (Rule 24001) and WAC 458-20-24001A (Rule 24001A) explain the sales and use tax deferral program in qualifying counties and community enterprise zones.

Chapter 82.60 RCW establishes a sales and use tax deferral program. These rules explain this program’s eligible area criteria, hiring requirements, reporting and monitoring procedures, and tax repayment requirements. They also explain the application procedure and review process, how the deferral certificate is to be used, and the record-keeping requirements of the deferral program.

The Department has amended these rules to recognize:

HB 3014 (chapter 16, Laws of 2010, 1st special session), which clarified the definition of manufacturing for applications filed prior to July 1, 2010 and changed the definition for those applications filed after June 30, 2010.  The legislation also amended the definition of a qualifying county for applications filed after June 30, 2010; and
E2SHB 1597 (chapter 106, Laws of 2010), which establishes that only those applications for the high technology deferral that have been approved are not confidential and subject to public disclosure.
