The Department of Revenue has created a general information listserv to make it easier for taxpayers to stay informed. The listserv will alert subscribers to new legislation, revisions to tax law, rate changes and any department programs that might impact their businesses.
The department also maintains listservs on specialized topics, but this is the first time they’ve created one to cover a variety of issues.
In Washington, taxpayers are responsible for knowing their reporting obligations. The department has assisted them by sending information to taxpayers as changes occur. However, because of budget cuts, the Department of Revenue is unable to send many of the informational mailings that it previously sent to taxpayers.
