Nothing is certain – But death and taxes – well at least for WA State residents. WA state just passed into law an “Digital Goods” tax. This tax applies to all “Subscription” and “online” services (premium) – In our case – this _does_ apply to us.
We are only supposed to collect taxes for WA state residents! So if you are not in WA state, you can use QP tax free!
If you _are_ a WA state resident (if your Credit Card has a WA state code billing address) we will be charging you a 9.5% tax on all purchases. We are currently in the process of updating our billing system to reflect this.
Q: I am not in the United States – am I affected?
Q: My company is physically located outside WA state, but my credit card billing has WA state in it? Am I affected?
A: Yes. If your credit card billing address is in WA state, we are required to collect 9.5% digital goods sales tax.
Q: When will this go into affect?
A: Over the next month, we will be updating our billing system. You should see a line item in your invoice for the 9.5% Digital Goods Tax
Q: Any way I can avoid paying this tax?
A: No. We are required by law to collect this and cannot make any exceptions.
