The Washington Department of Revenue (DOR) offers a sales and use tax deferral program for qualifying manufacturing and research and development activities in certain areas. The program applies to sales and use tax on the construction, expansion, or renovation of qualified buildings and on the acquisition of qualified machinery and equipment for an eligible investment project. Investment projects must be located in counties with a certain unemployment rate or in a "community empowerment zone."

To be eligible for the program, a taxpayer must submit an application to the DOR before (1) the start of construction, (2) the acquisition of machinery and equipment, and (3) the filling of qualified employment positions. Upon approval of the application, the DOR will issue a deferral certificate. The taxpayer must provide this certificate to sellers when goods or services are purchased.
