ISSUANCE OF INTERPRETIVE STATEMENT
The department of revenue has issued a revised Excise Tax
Advisory 2016.04.111 (Second Revision) Staffing Companies (ETA
2016). The previous version of ETA 2016 provided guidance to
staffing companies and professional employer organizations
(PEOs) regarding their business and occupation (B&O) and
retail sales tax reporting responsibilities in light of the
Washington State Supreme Court's decision in City of Tacoma v.
William Rogers Company Inc., 149 Wn.2d 169, 60 P.3d 79 (2002).
The guidance for PEOs has been removed form this ETA because
SSB 6671 (chapter 301, Laws of 2005) provides specific
tax-reporting requirements for PEOs.
