Washington Exempts Construction Materials for Disabled Veterans

May 19, 2017 Becca Haile

The State of Washington has passed new legislation which provides an exemption for materials incorporated into and services rendered in respect to adapted housing for disabled veterans from retail sales tax. The exemption only applies to construction projects for disabled veterans approved by the United States Department of Veteran Affairs. The exemption will be in the form of a remittance not to exceed $2,500 per calendar quarter. The state will not issue more than $125,000 of remittances per fiscal year. The exemption applies only to the state sales tax, not to local sales taxes. The new law takes effect on July 23, and applies to sales after August 1.
