PROPOSED RULES

DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE

[Filed April 30, 1997, 1:45 p.m.]

Original Notice.

Preproposal statement of inquiry was filed as WSR 97-06-111.

Title of Rule: WAC 458-40-660 Timber excise tax--Stumpage value tables.

Purpose: RCW 84.33.091 requires that the stumpage value tables be revised twice annually by rule. WAC 458-40-660 contains the proposed stumpage values for the second half of 1997. Large harvesters of timber use these values to calculate the timber excise tax.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 82.33.330 and 84.33.096.

Statute Being Implemented: RCW 84.33.091, 82.32.060, and 84.33.077.

Summary: The rule contains eight tables of stumpage values. These eight tables represent the areas in the state in which timber is harvested. Each table breaks out the values by timber species, quality, and a downward adjustment for hauling. The rule also contains two harvest adjustment tables for the volume per acre which is harvested, logging conditions, remote island harvesting, and thinning. In addition, the rule also contains a domestic market adjustment table for some timber which is not sold by a competitive bidding process and that is prohibited from export.

Reasons Supporting Proposal: This rule and the breakdowns reflected above are required to be done twice a year by RCW 84.33.091.

Name of Agency Personnel Responsible for Drafting: Edward Ratcliffe, 711 Capitol Way South, #303, Olympia, WA, (360) 586-3505; Implementation and Enforcement: Gary O'Neil, 2735 Harrison N.W., Building 4, Olympia, WA, (360) 753-2871.

Name of Proponent: Department of Revenue, governmental.

Rule is not necessitated by federal law, federal or state court decision.

Explanation of Rule, its Purpose, and Anticipated Effects: The amendment of WAC 458-40-660 complies with RCW 84.33.091 that requires that the department publish stumpage values on a semi-annual basis. The tables set out for each stumpage value area the amount that each species or subclassification of timber would sell for at a voluntary sale made in the ordinary course of business for purposes of immediate harvest. Harvesters, other than small harvesters, of timber use the tables as a basis for calculating the amount of timber excise tax owed.

Proposal Changes the Following Existing Rules: Values are updated. See explanation above.

No small business economic impact statement has been prepared under chapter 19.85 RCW. The stumpage value table is required by law. The agency is given no discretion in implementing the table. The rules do not impose a responsibility or require a small business to perform something that is not already required by law.

Section 201, chapter 403, Laws of 1995, does not apply to this rule adoption. These are significant legislative rules pursuant to subsection (5)(a)(I)[(i)] of section 201, chapter 403, Laws of 1995 (RCW 34.05.328 (5)(a)(i)).

Hearing Location: Department of Revenue, Conference Room, Target Place, Building No. 4, 2735 Harrison Avenue N.W., Olympia, WA, on June 11, 1997, at 10 a.m.

Assistance for Persons with Disabilities: Contact Janet Schilter by June 4, 1997, TDD 1-800-451-7985, or (360) 753-3217.

Submit Written Comments to: Ed Ratcliffe, Department of Revenue, P.O. Box 47467, Olympia, WA 98504-7467, FAX (360) 664-0693, by June 11, 1997.

Date of Intended Adoption: June 30, 1997.
