Use this app to find the sales and use tax rate* and code for any location in Washington. You can look up rates by your current location (using GPS), address, or zip code. It’s an ideal tool if you make deliveries to your customers in multiple locations.
*Sales tax rates for lodging, motor vehicle sales and rentals, and liquor are different than the general rate and are not included in this app.
This app offers features that make it easier to collect and keep track of sales tax on-the-go:
Calculate total amount due
•Calculate the total amount to collect from your customer—sales price plus sales tax—when you enter the amount of the sale.
Save your locations
•Keep track of the locations you’ve looked up by saving them to a list.
•The list includes: date, address, location code, tax rate, confirmation code, effective dates of the rate at that location, and—if you used the calculator—taxable amount, tax due, and total.
•Allows you to add a title to each entry for easier tracking
Send your location
•Email or text a location entry to yourself or someone else.
•The entry includes: date, address, location code, tax rate, confirmation code, effective dates of the rate at that location, and—if you used the calculator—taxable amount, tax due, and total.
•View a location on a map—either your current location (using GIS), or a location you’ve searched for.
How to look up a tax rate Using your current location

Using an address or zip+4
•Key the address or zip code +4 into the appropriate field(s).
•Tap Done; the system will find your present location and display the tax rate information*.
*Sometimes an exact match can’t be found. You may use the rate the app provides if it’s within 100 meters of the location.
