(4) A delivery sale licensee must not accept a purchase or order from any person without first obtaining the full name, birth date, and residential address of that person and verifying this information through an independently operated third-party database or aggregate of databases, which includes data from government sources, that are regularly used by government and businesses for the purpose of age and identity verification and authentication.

(6) Before a delivery sale licensee delivers an initial purchase to any person, the licensee must verify the identity and delivery address of the purchaser by mailing or shipping to the purchaser a notice of sale and certification form confirming that the addressee is in fact the person placing the order. The purchaser must return the signed certification form to the licensee before the initial shipment of product. Certification forms are not required for repeat customers.

(10) The attorney general may seek an injunction in superior court to restrain a threatened or actual violation of this section and to compel compliance with this section.

(11) Any violation of this section is not reasonable in relation to the development and preservation of business and is an unfair and deceptive act or practice and an unfair method of competition in the conduct of trade or commerce in violation of RCW 19.86.020. Standing to bring an action to enforce RCW 19.86.020 for violation of this section lies solely with the attorney general. Remedies provided by chapter 19.86 RCW are cumulative and not exclusive.

"NEW SECTION.Sec. 1.† (1) This section is the tax preference performance statement for the tax preference in section 2 of this act. This performance statement is only intended to be used for subsequent evaluation of the tax preference. It is not intended to create a private right of action by any party or to determine eligibility for preferential tax treatment.

(2) The legislature categorizes this tax preference as one intended to provide tax relief for certain individuals, as indicated in RCW 82.32.808(2)(e).

(3) It is the legislature's specific public policy objective to provide more extensive property tax relief to veterans with total disability ratings and their surviving spouses or domestic partners to properly recognize their sacrifice on behalf of the nation and to enable them to remain in their residences, thus reducing homelessness and demand for services in state veterans' homes.

(4) To measure the effectiveness of this act in achieving the objective in subsection (3) of this section, the joint legislative audit and review committee must provide a report to the legislature by December 1, 2020, assessing the impact of the tax preference in reducing homelessness and demand for services in state veterans' homes among veterans with total disability ratings and their surviving spouses or domestic partners.

Sec. 2.† RCW 84.36.381 and 2015 3rd sp.s. c 30 s 2 are each amended to read as follows:

A person is exempt from any legal obligation to pay all or a portion of the amount of excess and regular real property taxes due and payable in the year following the year in which a claim is filed, and thereafter, in accordance with the following:

(1) The property taxes must have been imposed upon a residence which was occupied by the person claiming the exemption as a principal place of residence as of the time of filing. However, any person who sells, transfers, or is displaced from his or her residence may transfer his or her exemption status to a replacement residence, but no claimant may receive an exemption on more than one residence in any year. Moreover, confinement of the person to a hospital, nursing home, assisted living facility, or adult family home does not disqualify the claim of exemption if:

(a) The residence is temporarily unoccupied;

(b) The residence is occupied by a spouse or a domestic partner and/or a person financially dependent on the claimant for support; or

(c) The residence is rented for the purpose of paying nursing home, hospital, assisted living facility, or adult family home costs;

(2) The person claiming the exemption must have owned, at the time of filing, in fee, as a life estate, or by contract purchase, the residence on which the property taxes have been imposed or if the person claiming the exemption lives in a cooperative housing association, corporation, or partnership, such person must own a share therein representing the unit or portion of the structure in which he or she resides. For purposes of this subsection, a residence owned by a marital community or state registered domestic partnership or owned by cotenants is deemed to be owned by each spouse or each domestic partner or each cotenant, and any lease for life is deemed a life estate;

(3)(((a))) The person claiming the exemption must be:

(((i))) (a) Sixty-one years of age or older on December 31st of the year in which the exemption claim is filed, or must have been, at the time of filing, retired from regular gainful employment by reason of disability, or the surviving spouse or surviving domestic partner of a person who was receiving an exemption under this subsection at the time of the person's death if the surviving spouse or domestic partner is fifty-seven years of age or older and otherwise meets the requirements of this section; or

(((ii))) (b) A veteran of the armed forces of the United States entitled to and receiving compensation from the United States department of veterans affairs at a total disability rating for a service-connected disability((.

(b) However, any surviving spouse or surviving domestic partner of a person who was receiving an exemption at the time of the person's death will qualify if the surviving spouse or surviving domestic partner is fifty-seven years of age or older and otherwise meets the requirements of this section)), or the surviving spouse or surviving domestic partner of a person who was receiving an exemption under this subsection at the time of the person's death if the surviving spouse or domestic partner is fifty-seven years of age or older. Those who qualify under this subsection (3)(b) are exempt from all regular and excess property taxes on a residence that meets the requirements of subsections (1) and (2) of this section;

(4) The amount that ((the)) a person qualifying under subsection (3)(a) of this section is exempt from an obligation to pay is calculated on the basis of combined disposable income, as defined in RCW 84.36.383. If the person claiming the exemption was retired for two months or more of the assessment year, the combined disposable income of such person must be calculated by multiplying the average monthly combined disposable income of such person during the months such person was retired by twelve. If the income of the person claiming exemption is reduced for two or more months of the assessment year by reason of the death of the person's spouse or the person's domestic partner, or when other substantial changes occur in disposable income that are likely to continue for an indefinite period of time, the combined disposable income of such person must be calculated by multiplying the average monthly combined disposable income of such person after such occurrences by twelve. If it is necessary to estimate income to comply with this subsection, the assessor may require confirming documentation of such income prior to May 31 of the year following application;

(5)(a) A person under subsection (3)(a) of this section who otherwise qualifies under this section and has a combined disposable income of forty thousand dollars or less is exempt from all excess property taxes; and

(b)(i) A person under subsection (3)(a) of this section who otherwise qualifies under this section and has a combined disposable income of thirty-five thousand dollars or less but greater than thirty thousand dollars is exempt from all regular property taxes on the greater of fifty thousand dollars or thirty-five percent of the valuation of his or her residence, but not to exceed seventy thousand dollars of the valuation of his or her residence; or

(6)(a) For a person under subsection (3)(a) of this section who otherwise qualifies under this section and has a combined disposable income of forty thousand dollars or less, the valuation of the residence is the assessed value of the residence on the later of January 1, 1995, or January 1st of the assessment year the person first qualifies under this section. If the person subsequently fails to qualify under this section only for one year because of high income, this same valuation must be used upon requalification.

The President Pro Tempore declared the question before the Senate to be the adoption of the striking amendment no. 584 by Senator Angel to Second Substitute Senate Bill No. 5127.

The motion by Senator Angel carried and the striking amendment was adopted by voice vote.

 

MOTION

Senator Angel spoke in favor of passage of the bill.

Senator Takko spoke against passage of the bill.

 

POINT OF INQUIRY

 

Senator Takko:† ďWill Senator Angel yield to a question?Ē

 

REPLY BY THE PRESIDENT PRO TEMPORE

 

President Pro Tempore, Senator Roach: :† ďShe does.Ē

 

Senator Takko:† ďDoes this have any means testing?Ē

 

Senator Angel:† ďSenator Takko, that is the purpose of this bill is to get rid of the means testing for that veteran that is one hundred percent disabled through his or her service.Ē

 

The President Pro Tempore declared the question before the Senate to be the final passage of Engrossed Second Substitute Senate Bill No. 5127.

 

ROLL CALL

 

The Secretary called the roll on the final passage of Engrossed Second Substitute Senate Bill No. 5127 and the bill passed the Senate by the following vote:† Yeas, 34; Nays, 9; Absent, 0; Excused, 6.

Voting yea: Senators Angel, Bailey, Baumgartner, Becker, Benton, Braun, Brown, Cleveland, Conway, Dammeier, Dansel, Ericksen, Fain, Fraser, Hewitt, Hill, Hobbs, Honeyford, King, Litzow, McAuliffe, McCoy, Miloscia, Mullet, O'Ban, Padden, Parlette, Pearson, Rivers, Roach, Rolfes, Schoesler, Sheldon and Warnick

STATEMENT FOR THE JOURNAL

 

I voted no because, as the prime sponsor stated, the purpose of this bill is to eliminate the means test.† I believe this is wrong policy.† For example, the ex-spouse of a cumulative 100 percent disabled veteran who remarries a millionaire would still carry the tax exemption to the millionaireís property.

 

SENATOR HASEGAWA, 11th Legislative District
