PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE
[Filed July 28, 2022, 3:32 p.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 458-12-030 County appraisers' salary and classification plan, and 458-12-035 Standard forms.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 84.08.010
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The department is proposing to repeal WAC 458-12-030 because the rule is outdated, and the department is not the agency responsible for establishing and maintaining the salary and classification plans for appraisers employed by county assessors as described in RCW 36.21.011
The department is proposing to update WAC 458-12-035 to clarify the process used by county assessors and county treasurers wanting to amend forms statutorily required to be provided by the department.
