Washington – New Exemption Certificate for Health Care Providers

SALT Report 2443 – The Washington Department of Revenue has released a new sales tax exemption certificate specific to health care providers. Qualified health care providers that are eligible to use the certificate include hospitals, medical clinics, physicians, or other health care professionals who are licensed to prescribe drugs or other medical items for human use. However, because chiropractors, practitioners of East Asian medicine, and massage cannot legally prescribe drugs or other medical items under state law, they cannot use the exemption certificate.
