Biodiesel, Biodiesel Feedstock, and Alcohol Fuel Production Property and Leasehold Tax Exemption

July 28, 2003


House Bill 1240 amends RCW 84.36 and RCW 82.29A.135 to include buildings, machinery, equipment, and other personal property used primarily for the manufacturing of biodiesel or alcohol fuel in property and leasehold tax exemptions. This exemption is available for six years after the initial date of operation. If a manufacturing facility produces alcohol or biodiesel to be used for non-fuel purposes, the amount of the property tax exemption will be based on a percentage of the total gallons of biodiesel or alcohol that is sold or used as fuel.
