A WA resident can purchase a long gun from a OR FFL. (Saves sales tax but you must pay the $10 background check)
A OR resident can purchase a long gun from a WA FFL. (No sales tax to OR buyers and WA doesn't charge a background check fee)
but not the answers the OP was asking for.
Guess I missunderstood the question. Is the goal for a WA resident to buy a gun online and have it shipped to an OR FFL where the final paperwork is to be done?
I would think the answer is yes, since as I stated, a WA resident can use an OR FFL to purchase a long gun. Why would it matter to the guy in IN (or wherever) care if he sends it to OR or WA? The OR FFL meets the requirements for shipping purposes and then the WA resident can purchase from the OR FFL.
"Kimber Custom" thank you for the reply!!!
Yes...the goal is to have a WA resident purchase a gun online and have it shipped to an OR FFL and then have it transferred to the WA resident.
Did not know that an OR resident can purchase a long gun from a WA FFL and be sales tax exempt...hmmm. I guess this sales tax exemption goes for FFL transfers also then...correct?
Of course you know that after buying your rifle in OR and returning home to WA you are required by state law to report your purchase to the dept of revenue and pay the " use tax " which is the same amount as sales tax would have been. .....
This tax thing just plain SUCKS! Like I said I have had a few good dealings with transfers with WA FFLs. Also there are some who do collect the @&#!.
I am just venting as I own a business in Or and live in WA. I have to pay WA tax on my vehicle as I might use it for personal reasons. Also can vote in WA but also have to pay the OR taxes but can not vote I am just tired of everyone wanting there share of the pie
