The Washington Department of Revenue recently ruled that progress payments for ongoing vehicle restoration projects are eligible for the interstate and foreign sales tax deduction.

The taxpayer provided vehicle restoration services. Certain nonresident customers made progress payments for ongoing projects. The taxpayer took the interstate and foreign sales tax deduction for those payment, but was denied because the payments were for vehicles that were still in Washington.

Washington exempts repairs performed on property shipped into the state by nonresidents if the seller "agrees to, and does" deliver the property to the purchaser outside of Washington. The ruling found that the deduction applied to payments made on property still located in Washington as long as the agreement called for out-of-state delivery upon completion.

Note that the deduction does not apply for B&O tax purposes because the taxpayer's services are performed in Washington.
