The Following Sections are Proposed for Expedited Repeal: WAC 458-20-259 Small timber harvesters -- Business and occupation tax exemption.

Rules Proposed for Expedited Repeal Meet the Following Criteria: Other rules of the agency or of another agency govern the same activity as the rule, making the rule redundant.

Any person who objects to the repeal of the rule must file a written objection to the repeal within thirty days after publication of this preproposal statement of inquiry.

Address Your Objection to: Alan R. Lynn, Department of Revenue, P.O. Box 47467, Olympia, WA 98504-7467, fax (360) 664-0693, e-mail

Reason the Expedited Repeal of the Rule is Appropriate: The department has proposed a new WAC 458-20-13501 Timber harvest operations, to consolidate tax-reporting information now found in multiple documents into a single comprehensive rule. The information now found in Rule 259 is being incorporated into this new rule. The department intends to repeal Rule 259 in conjunction with the adoption of a new Rule 13501.
