The local sales tax rate in Washington can be different from one side of the street to the other.
So, how can a contractor or delivery person know if the rate is.078 or .087 where he's standing?
Well, there's an app for that.
The Department of Revenue created its first app for users to look up sales and use tax rates for any Washington location from an iPhone or iPad.
It's free, of course! Find it at dor.wa.gov/TaxRateMobile.
It will help businesses that make deliveries or provide retail services in different locations.
Use GPS, street addresses, or zip codes to look up rates. Save the information to a list, or forward it to another phone or email address – making the transfer of information from a job site or delivery location to a main office quick and easy.
Tell your friends, customers, and local businesses to download the app today. Look for the Android version in the Google Play marketplace within a few months.
