Washington Sales Tax Rate Changes, October 2014


 October in Skagit County = pumpkins and boundary changes.

Beginning October 1, 2014, a new sales and use tax rate takes effect in one city in Washington State and a boundary change takes effect in another.

The City of Marysville is establishing a Transportation Benefit District (TDB) with a sales and use tax rate of 0.2%. The new local sales tax rate for Marysville will be 2.3%, for a combined state and local rate of 8.8%.

Skagit County will revise the boundaries of its Public Transportation Benefit Area (PTBA). As a result, “persons or businesses within a portion of Unincorporated Skagit County that previously reported to 2900 must report to location code 2929.” The proper sales tax must be submitted, as well.

Skagit County sales tax rates

  • Unincorporated areas (2900): Local rate of 1.6%. Combined rate of 8.1%.
  • Unincorporated areas PTBA (2929): Local rate of 2%. Combined rate of 8.5%.
