Purpose: WAC 458-40-640 Timber excise tax -- Stumpage value area (map), provides a map that identifies haul zones relative to the distance to the closest timber processing facility available to process harvested timber. These zones are used to adjust the taxable value of harvested timber. The rule has been revised to adjust haul zones affected by the closure of a facility located in eastern Washington. The haul zone for Point Roberts, which can only be reached overland though Canada, has been adjusted to recognize the increased difficulty of cross-border hauling.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Amending WAC 458-40-640 Timber excise tax -- Stumpage value area (map).

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 82.32.300, 82.01.060(2), and 84.33.096.
