As explained by a Department of Revenue Special Notice, as of August 1, 2013, the Evergreen State no longer exempts charges for residentially tariffed wireline telephone service charges; sales tax will be collected on those charges. In addition, sales tax will be collected on coin-operated telephone service charges. On the other hand, the Washington Telephone Assistance Program (WTAP) tax and the Telephone Relay Service (TRS) tax will no longer be collected.
