    I'm not sure if this is true, but I've heard that if its not a brick and mortar place you don't have to pay the sales tax. Correct me if I am wrong...

    Thanks!

    That's not true. Be careful of people trying to scam the state. Not that I agree with the crazy taxes we pay, but until its repealed...

    This looks like someone trying to find a law breaker.
    My apologies to the OP but it seems like phishing.

    Be a heck of a deal if the state comes to this dealer with your gun in his hands.
    Lose a gun for a few buck in taxes.

    I was gonna say I know of a dealer in the Winlock area, but he most assuredly pays the governor, so he's out of the list. He also calls in the NICS, makes you wait the five days for the pistol (minus CPL) and follows all the other laws...so...keep looking I guess...

    on any retail transaction sales tax must be paid. Who pays it is between the dealer and the customer.

    Anyone that does know one of these FFLs that refuses the King's tax most likely won't speak up, considering the nature of this post...

    You are asking for the name of someone who knowingly breaks the law on an open forum? Any retail sale of anything but food (or a few other things) in WA is taxable.

    You heard wrong!!

    Why would the BATFE care about the WA sales tax? Would failure to collect be a federal offence that would qualify for FFL revocation/arrest?

    Just trying to understand who would actually be fishing in this case... :D

    Maybe its the WSP... :laugh:

    Feds use all sorts of tricks and some anti gunners are more than happy to troll like this for free, seeking victims for state/Fed harassment. We are at war for our remaining liberties, folks

    OK if you rob a store,it's probably a felony.If you rob a liqueur store,they could make it federal since liqueur is regulated by the fed gov.
    A gun crime can become federal easily because the feds regulate guns to some extent.
    If you are committing a crime of any value and guns or anything federally regulated is involved,maybe the BATF wants a piece?

    Speaking of the BATF,who brought the chips?

    According to the DOR website it's the Washington gun dealer that is required to collect the Use Tax. I don't know if he can be audited by DOR, but I would imagine if he was audited he would be required to pay any uncollected Use Tax, then it would be up to him to come after you for reimbursement.

    Yes, they can and are audited by the DOR (just like ANY business that collects sales/use tax for the state)!! It happened here in Vancouver to one FFL. The owner had to pony up the money to pay the state. The word is that some people paid him back, others didn't.
