I work for a small used car dealerships in Oregon and we use the website all the time to look up motor vehicle sales tax. I thought the app would help me while outside talking to customers, but the app doesn't have that tab like the website. * I'm aware it's for WA, we have WA customers that we have to look up taxes for. Vehicle sales tax is different than regular use sales tax, hince the reason I can't use the app.

Thank you for the feedback. At this time, the app can only pull data for retail sales tax. We have plans in the future to add tax rates for vehicles. We recommend bookmarking the web version of the tool in the browser on your phone. If you have other questions about the app please call our Customer Experience Mgr Denine Lathrop at 360-705-6610.

Map can only be used to find the tax rate at the current gps location of your phone. You cannot scroll and tap a different location on the map like your delivery address. This makes the tool mostly useless.

It's been 3 Days and I have not been able to pull a tax rate either by location or by putting in the address manually. Phone is working A-OK. I have rebooted... Nothing. Uninstalled - rebooted - reinstall - rebooted... Nothing. Gee without that feature... lol
