July 2020


The Washington Department of Revenue is temporarily expanding eligibility for its voluntary disclosure agreement (VDA) program effective July 15 through November 30, 2020. The expanded program allows participation by businesses contacted by the Department prior to July 1, 2019, as well as affiliates of businesses not named in an enforcement contact by the Department.

The takeaway

The ability of otherwise ineligible businesses to participate in the Washington VDA program by November 30 is a significant opportunity to limit lookback and penalties. However, given the continuing limitations on eligibility and the requirement to disclose the applicant’s name within 15 days of the application, care should be taken in analyzing the specific facts of each situation before moving forward.
