Requirement to Pay Sales Tax
The University of Washington is not exempt from paying Washington state sales or use tax. Vendors are expected to charge sales tax on sales they make to the University. Out of state vendors may not be registered to do business in the state of Washington and may not charge the appropriate tax. If sales tax is not charged and the item is subject to tax, use tax will be assessed.
Request for Supplier Information
All suppliers not already in the supplier database must supply the University with a Supplier Registration Form to ensure that we have appropriate information for both state and federal tax reporting.
