The State Department of Revenue has issued a proposed rule modifying the definition of hospital in WAC 458-16-260 as it pertains to property tax exemptions. WSHA submitted a comment letter supporting the change, which makes the WAC definitions consistent with earlier Board of Tax Appeals and Superior Court rulings on the subject. The proposed rule clarifies language that the property tax exemption applies to hospital outpatient sites including hospital-based clinics that are licensed as part of the hospital. WSHA requested the change earlier in the rulemaking process. (Andrew Busz, email@example.com).
