CANCELLATION OF INTERPRETIVE STATEMENT
The department of revenue has cancelled the following excise tax advisory (ETA):
ETA 3167.2016 – Taxability of Fees Charged for Amusement and Recreation Services
ETA 3167.2016 explains the tax treatment of "entry fees" and "league fees" charged for amusement and recreation services. These terms were once included in a prior version of WAC 458-20-183 but were removed in 2018 when the rule was updated. The rule was updated as a result of changes to RCW 82.04.050
that went into effect on January 1, 2016, and this ETA only applies to tax reporting periods through December 31, 2015. This ETA no longer serves a meaningful purpose.
