Just in case you missed the Wednesday afternoon developements, a Skagit County Superior Court judge has put a temporary block to the Washington state sales tax exemption for British Columbia residents that was supposed to begin on Thursday, July 1. Here’s a (Link) to John Stark’s article with the details.
It’s a significant last-minute development, and it’ll be interesting to see if the word gets out so Whatcom County retailers can adjust if they had already planned for the exemption. It could be tough getting the word out to all the retail employees, as well as making changes to the cash registers. It would be a shame if a business gives the exemption to B.C. residents, then finds it has to pay it out of pocket to the state.
