The purpose of ETA 2024 is to clarify the tax reporting responsibilities of persons in Washington who store, inspect, test, and label canned salmon that was canned outside of Washington. This advisory has been revised to recognize provisions of chapter 354, Laws of 2006, which provides a specific B&O tax rate to persons inspecting, testing, labeling, and storing salmon owned by another person. This tax rate becomes effective July 1, 2006.
