There's a fellow in Thurston county who does long guns for $20 and handguns for $25

Used to use LPG in Bellevue.

They jacked up their transfer to $40 + tax.

Lost me there.

Now looking for someone else, probably try someone from the Gunbroker dealer finder.

Paying an extra $40 on a stripped AR lower was the last straw.

Yes, you have to pay sales tax, same as if you bought a gun from a local dealer. They call it "use tax" but it's the same rate as sales tax in the area of your FFL. My FFL is in Tacoma, so 9.4%.

I still don't understand why people complain about paying sales tax, like it's something new...
Not many states do this. WA is grasping for any revenue they can find.

$150 on a $1500 gun is quite a bit of scratch IMHO.

The biggest complaint I have is that nobody pays tax on internet purchases from out of state (yet, and I know officially people are supposed to).

The state .gov singled out the firearms industry because they were an easy target with FFL recordkeeping.
