PERMANENT RULES

DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE

[Filed December 31, 1996, 9:45 a.m., effective January 1, 1997]

Date of Adoption: December 31, 1996.

Purpose: WAC 458-40-660 contains the proposed stumpage values for the first half of 1997. Harvesters of timber use these values to calculate the timber excise tax. WAC 458-40-690 is proposed to be amended to conform with the statute and rule that allow refunds of excise tax overpaid by the taxpayer.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Amending WAC 458-40-660 and 458-40-690.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 82.32.330 and 84.33.096.

Other Authority: RCW 84.33.091.

Adopted under notice filed as WSR 96-22-090 on November 6, 1996.

Changes Other than Editing from Proposed to Adopted Version: The text of the proposed rule, WAC 458-40-660 Stumpage value tables, was changed to reduce the values of "Small Logs" in SVA 6 (Table 6) two dollars for each hauling zone, from 30 to 28, 29 to 27, and so forth. The reason for the change was a review of the data that resulted in the reduced value. The text of the proposed rule, WAC 458-40-690 Credit for property tax, was not changed.

Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Comply with Federal Statute: New 0, amended 0, repealed 0; Federal Rules or Standards: New 0, amended 0, repealed 0; or Recently Enacted State Statutes: New 0, amended 0, repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted at Request of a Nongovernmental Entity: New 0, amended 0, repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted on the Agency's own Initiative: New 0, amended 2, repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Clarify, Streamline, or Reform Agency Procedures: New 0, amended 1, repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted using Negotiated Rule Making: New 0, amended 0, repealed 0; Pilot Rule Making: New 0, amended 0, repealed 0; or Other Alternative Rule Making: New 0, amended 2, repealed 0.

Other Findings Required by Other Provisions of Law as Precondition to Adoption or Effectiveness of Rule: The stumpage value rule is required by statute (RCW 84.33.091) to be effective on January 1, 1997. The property tax credit rule must also be effective on the same date as the stumpage value rule in order to permit the systematic and orderly administration of the timber excise tax.

Effective Date of Rule: January 1, 1997.

AMENDATORY SECTION (Amending Order 86-4, filed 12/31/86)

WAC 458-40-690 Timber excise tax--Credit for property tax. In accordance with RCW 84.33.077 and 84.36.473, persons engaged in business as harvesters of timber from public land shall be allowed a tax credit against the timber excise tax imposed under chapter 84.33 RCW for any personal property taxes paid to a county on such public timber sales. The credit shall be allowed only for property taxes paid on public timber purchased on or after August 1, 1982. The credit shall be taken only on excise taxes due on timber harvested from public land. No excise tax credits shall be allowed against excise taxes due on timber harvested from private land.

(1) Amount of credit. The total dollar amount of all excise tax credits claimed on one or more sales shall not exceed the total amount of all personal property taxes levied and paid on such timber. No excise tax credit shall be allowed for property tax penalties or interest charges imposed on delinquent property taxes. No excise tax credits shall be allowed prior to payment of personal property taxes, and the amount of credit allowed shall not exceed the amount of property tax actually paid as certified by the county treasurer.

(2) Excess credits and refunds. If the amount of the credit exceeds the amount of timber excise tax due for the calendar quarter in which the credit is claimed, the excess credit ((shall)) may be carried forward to the new quarterly reporting period and applied against the amount of timber excise tax due, if any, on public timber or may be refunded to the taxpayer in accordance with RCW 82.32.060 and WAC 458-20-229. ((Excise tax refunds for unused credit shall be made only if the taxpayer has no public timber sales pending against which to apply the unused credit.))

(3) Credit application procedures. Taxpayers who wish to claim such timber excise tax credits must apply on forms prepared by the department. The application must be certified by the county assessor and treasurer of the county in which the property taxes were paid. Application forms shall be made available in the offices of county assessors, county treasurers, and the department. The applications must be submitted with timber excise tax returns for taxes due on public timber.
