    I've paid taxes in WA on FFL transfers before of course, but I didn't think about it when I ordered several of these lower plus optic deals from PSA.

    http://palmettostatearmory.com/inde...t-pictogram-lower-and-vortex-sparc-optic.html

    Do you think the FFL is going to charge me tax on the full price of $159, even though some part of that is the optic? I suspect so, because the invoice just says:

    Blemished PSA Bullet Pictogram Lower and Vortex Sparc Optic

    $159.99

    I guess I learned my lesson! :mad:

    So how does the tax thing work for private transfers? If I was to sell somebody a handgun in WA and we went to FFL is there some standard MSRP they have to go by? I'm guessing they won't let you get away with selling a $500 gun for $5, or even $200 for that matter.

    They will look up market value somewhere. The lesson here is - don't go to an FFL, sell to someone with a CPL.

    Would any of our pro 2A state reps consider a bill to make the Dept of Revenue reverse their ruling on FFLs being responsible for firearm use taxes? They could fix the problem on gift taxes at the same time.

    I can dream can't I?

    Oh I wouldn't go to FFL if I didn't have to. I'm in Oregon and am just wondering how it works if I ever do want to sell a handgun to somebody in Washington. If I'm selling a rifle it's a no-brainer to have them come to Oregon and use FFL here and avoid all that tax junk. But for handgun the only choice is to go through FFL in Washington.
