Use Tax Process

The “Add Use Tax” box is a systematic way of adding “Use Tax” to a purchase that requires a Washington state sales tax that wasn’t previously collected by the supplier. Be primarily concerned about out of state merchants for this function. Each supplier state location is identified by the merchant state box on PaymentNet’s Transaction List page.

  • A checked “Add Use Tax” box instructs the Purchasing & Accounting System (PAS) to charge the purchase a Washington State Use tax.
  • A blank “Add Use Tax” box instructs the system to NOT charge the purchase a Washington State Use tax.

It is the responsibility of University of Washington employees to ensure tax is charged to all UW purchases if the item being purchased is used in the state of Washington. Each receipt/invoice for ProCard transactions with an out of state merchant should be reviewed to determine if the merchant charged Washington State sales tax. The box should be checked if sales tax should be charged on a purchase that wasn’t previously collected by the supplier. If the Use Tax box is checked, Use Tax (Washington State sales tax collected by the end user) will systematically be added to the transaction prior to the transaction appearing on the BAR.

There are three data fields in PaymentNet that determine whether Use Tax should be applied to a purchase. If the tax box is checked, PAS will then look at the detail in the Sales Tax column, if tax is not identified there, PAS will finally look at the object coding to determine if this is a taxable purchase.

  • Checking “Add Use Tax” box will charge use tax
  • PaymentNet defaults to a blank “Add Use Tax” box
  • However, each morning the ProCard Office will check all “Add Use Tax” boxes for out of state suppliers (a vast majority need to have use tax applied)
  • The “Use Tax” box should be unchecked if you don’t need use tax to be charged to a purchase from an out of state supplier
  • PaymentNet will also allow “Use Tax” to be charged for Washington State suppliers when sales tax is not collected by the supplier (ex.

Use Tax Over Payments
