Washington – Android Version of the Tax Rate Lookup App Released

1/31/2013

Salt Report 2100 – The Washington Department of Revenue announced that the state’s Tax Rate Lookup App is now available for use on Android smartphones. The new Android mobile app makes it easy for businesses to quickly look up sales and use tax rates for any Washington location. The Android version is similar to the previously released iPhone version that has been used for the past year by businesses that provide services or make deliveries to multiple locations in the state.

The Android version allows businesses to key in any address or use GPS to find the correct tax rate, location code, and receive a confirmation code. Once the rate is found the user can save the information to a list or forward it to another phone or email address, making the transfer of information from the field to a main office more efficient. The Android App is free and is available for download on the state’s website.

However, the Department warns users that because the sales tax rates for lodging, motor vehicle sales or rentals, and liquor are different than the general rate they are not included in the app.
