Do you sell games downloaded onto mobile phones?
Do you offer a web service for a fee?
Do your customers access your software from remote locations?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are now required to collect sales tax from your customers in Washington state under the new digital goods tax. Washington is one of the first states to impose sales tax on a wide range of digital products that are purchased by both consumers and businesses.

For sellers of digital products, you just got a B&O tax reduction but you have to now collect sales tax from your Washington based customers and remit it to the state. If you are a buyer of digital goods, you may now have new sales and use tax obligations that you didn’t have before.

Hear from a panel of experts in this groundbreaking law about the various and complicated issues surrounding this new tax.
