All Volts should now qualify for the sales tax exemption in WA State.

Have any forum members taken advantage of this? Would you please like to share your dealer experience with regard to claiming the exemption?

My purchase was in April, not after July 1st, and my purchase price was below $35,000. That said, I contacted the Department of Revenue and acquired all the details before I made my purchase. I reviewed the details with the dealer's finance/licensing people, to make sure they understood.

It was the Department of Licensing that required a little extra documentation. My purchase might have struck them as a little odd: I purchased the car out of a dealership in Beaverton, Oregon, and had the licensing done through that dealership's Vancouver, WA partner (a GM/Cadillac dealership in Vancouver). The Department of Licensing required a copy of the original window sticker, to complete the transaction.

In the end, though, the sales tax exemption worked perfectly. I'm a resident living in unincorporated Thurston County and ended up paying less than $20 in taxes. I cannot at this moment recall which taxing district was not included in the exemption.

I was in North Bend, WA today and the Chevy dealer had 3 out front. Each one had a hand written sign hanging from the rear view mirror saying "No sales tax on 2017 Volts".
