Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 458-20-177 (Rule 177) Sales of motor vehicles, campers, and trailers to nonresident consumers.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 82.32.300 and 82.01.060(2).
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Rule 177 explains the tax exemption from retail sales tax for sales of motor vehicles, campers, and trailers to bona fide nonresidents of Washington. The department is considering revisions to the rule to remove the requirement for sellers to obtain a corporate nonresident permit number and the obligation that buyers obtain such a permit. Some updating and removal of outdated language will also be done.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.
Process for Developing New Rule: Parties interested in this rule making may contact the individual listed below. The public may also participate by providing written comments throughout this rule making or giving oral testimony at the public meeting or public hearing.
