Use this app to find the sales and use tax rate* and code for any location in Washington. You can look up rates by your current location (using GPS), address, or zip code. It’s an ideal tool if you make deliveries to your customers in multiple locations.
*Sales tax rates for lodging, motor vehicle sales and rentals, and liquor are different than the general rate and are not included in this app.
This app offers features that make it easier to collect and keep track of sales tax on-the-go:
Calculate total amount due
•Calculate the total amount to collect from your customer—sales price plus sales tax—when you enter the amount of the sale.
Save your locations
•Keep track of the locations you’ve looked up by saving them to a list.
•The list includes: date, address, location code, tax rate, confirmation code, effective dates of the rate at that location, and—if you used the calculator—taxable amount, tax due, and total.
•Allows you to add a title to each entry for easier tracking
Send your location
•Email or text a location entry to yourself or someone else.
•The entry includes: date, address, location code, tax rate, confirmation code, effective dates of the rate at that location, and—if you used the calculator—taxable amount, tax due, and total.
•View a location on a map—either your current location (using GIS), or a location you’ve searched for.
How to look up a tax rate Using your current location
•From the home view, tap the Current Location button; the system will find your present location and display the tax rate information*.
Using an address or zip+4
•Key the address or zip code +4 into the appropriate field(s).
•Tap Done; the system will find your present location and display the tax rate information*.
*Sometimes an exact match can’t be found. You may use the rate the app provides if it’s within 100 meters of the location.
Once you have the tax rate, you can:
•Calculate total amount due by tapping the Calculate button, keying in the sale amount, and tapping Done. You can save or send this information along with the other information in your entry. Follow the instructions below.
•Save it to your list by entering a title (if you want one) and tapping the Save button. To edit a title or delete an entry, tap Edit and enter your new title or tap the minus icon (-) next to the entry.
•View your list by tapping the List button on the bottom of your search screen.
•Send it via text or email by tapping the Send.
•Save your confirmation code! This is your record if you’re ever audited.
•You can tap the Cancel button if you make a mistake.
•Use the Back button to return to your home view.
•Rates can change quarterly. Check back often to get the latest tax rate.

Ratings and Reviews
No send button or escape from address field
Very cool app! But, if you go to share, the send button disappears after putting an email address in, And if you click in the address field but want to click instead on the locate button, you can’t escape the address field. Also, share should include SMS sending so it can be texted to your friends
And one more - sending to support suffers the same no send button issue
I want more...
I save each invoice in this app. Then email each to an email just for tax purposes.
• It would be a time saver if there was a bulk export option instead of me emailing each individual invoice separately...
• It would be a timesaver if I could export the information to Washington State's combined excise tax online experience...
I use this for the buisnes I work for, only complaint I have is some of the sales taxes are a little off but other than that 98% on track with taxes.
