Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 458-20-19402 Single factor receipts apportionment—Generally (Rule 19402).

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Since amending Rule 19402 in 2015 to recognize Section 305 of SSB 6333 (chapter 97, Laws of 2014), the department has continued to receive public comments requesting additional guidance on Part 3 – "How to Attribute Receipts." Most comments are with regard to subsection (303)(c), on services relating to the customer's business activities. The department is considering updating this rule to clarify subsection (303)(c) specifically, and possibly other parts of the rule based on any comments received.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.
