In a special notice, the Department of Revenue is reminding stores about a new tax on vapor products that is due starting on October 1 of this year.
This tax is paid once by the first possessor of vapor products in the state and not from subsequent possessors or buyers. The notice applies only to products brought into Washington State after the tax takes effect.
For information about vapor tax due on products already in Washington before the tax takes effect, see this special notice. Contact information is included.
