In the second part of this series, we provided an overview of the sales and use tax exemptions for manufacturing machinery and equipment used directly in a manufacturing or research and development operation under RCW 82.08.02565 and 82.12.02565 (the “M&E” exemption). See Washington’s Taxation of Manufacturing — Part 2: The Sales and Use Tax Exemption for Manufacturing Machinery and Equipment.
