Oregon resident buys a bolt action long gun, has it shipped to his Wa gunsmith (FFL). Is there a requirement for the WA FFL to collect a Wa sales tax even though they were not the seller? Again, Oregon resident purchased direct from auction (out of state). FFL is just accepting delivery and doing transfer to an Oregon resident Did I-1639 add something to transfer sales if done in Wa?

The legislature removed the sales tax exemption July 1. Not part of 1639, this is a separate lets tax 'em more part of our current government in WA. Pistols, suppressors, lowers are still tax exempt because they are delivered in your state of residence (transferred to OR dealer). If it is delivered in the WA FFLs shop, sales tax is collected.

Thanks, that makes sense.

Unk if this helps or hinders...

Actual Scenario:
Wa. resident purchased from private seller in Ore.
Weapon sent/shipped to Wa. FFL dealer
Wa. resident paid sales tax.

I594 in 2015 removed the sales tax on private party sales/transfers including out of state private party purchases. If the purchase is from a retail seller then the tax is to be collected at transfer in WA. Some dealers seem to be collecting the tax incorrectly. If you paid a private party for your purchase then no tax should be collected.

If I understand TCOV & SS correctly, TCOV says no tax can be collected on a private rifle sale but SS says there is a 'separate lets tax 'em'?
I'm confused.. I went thru RCW 9.41 & I find nothing related to taxing as I described.

The scenario I described was on bolt action rifles which was processed on two or three instances via the same Wa. State FFL dealer but all purchases were via private owners that shipped them to Wa. State.
