Effective July 1, 2017, Utah is enacting a new sales tax exemption that applies to exterior car washing services.

Previously, Utah only exempted unassisted car washing services. Unassisted car washing services are those where an employee performs no cleaning or washing.

Under the new exemption, both assisted and unassisted car washing services are exempt when performed exclusively on the exterior of a vehicle. However, services including interior cleaning or washing are taxable.
