- Nov 4, 2013 | Gail Cole
The Department of Revenue has announced several lodging tax rate changes and RTA boundary changes, to take effect January 1, 2014.
Tourism promotion area (TPA)
The cities of the Tri-Cities area will increase the rate of the TPA tax from $1.50 to $2.00. The rate increase impacts Kennewick, Pasco and Richland, Washington.
Regional transit authority (RTA)
There will be a new location code for sales tax reporting in the Newcastle area, thanks to an upcoming change to the RTA boundary:
- “Lodging businesses with 60 or more rooms/spaces located within Newcastle, but outside the RTA boundary will need to report to location code 4336.”
- “Lodging businesses with 59 or fewer rooms/spaces located in the same area will report to location code 4036.”
