AGO Opinions with Topic: REIMPOSITION OF TIMBER EXCISE TAX
AGO 1978 No. 2 >  January 24, 1978
TAXATION - STATE - LEGISLATURE - REIMPOSITION OF TIMBER EXCISE TAX
TAXATION—STATE—LEGISLATURE—REIMPOSITION OF TIMBER EXCISE TAX Given that the timber excise tax imposed by RCW 82.04.291 will expire on December 31, 1978, under existing legislation, if the legislature were to reimpose the tax during its next (1979) regular session, effective January 1, 1979, such an enactment would be constitutionally valid; moreover, this would be so even if the rate of the tax as reimposed were to be different than the present rate; however, in order to strengthen the defensibility of any such legislation it is recommended that it be enacted into law and signed by the governor on or before March 1, 1979.
