Under RCW 84.36.050, the UW, which includes UWMC, is exempt from property tax on real or personal property owned or used by the University in this state if used for educational purposes. Therefore, we do not have or need an exemption certificate.
However, if we are leasing, there may be a different set of rules, which depends on the type of lease. Please refer to the lease agreement between the University and supplier.
*Note: Harborview Medical Center (HMC) is not considered a UW entity for these purposes.
