Property owners in the Town of Beaux Arts Village must also comply with King County, Washington State and Federal regulations that affect their proposed project and/or property, including but not limited to the following.
- SALES TAX REPORTING: The Town has its own Sales Tax number. A portion of the sales taxes collected and reported using this Sales Tax Number are returned to the Town and used for local projects: repairing streets, maintaining Town property, general administration, etc.
Property owners and/or contractors are asked to report all sales-tax collections to the Washington State Department of Revenue using the Beaux Arts Sales Tax Number 1703. In addition, owners/contractors purchasing materials that are delivered to a Beaux Arts address should ask the merchant to report the sales-tax collections associated with the purchase to this Sales Tax Number.
- BALD EAGLE PROTECTION: Beaux Arts is home to at least one pair of nesting bald eagles; many construction projects will be subject to Federal and state rules that protect the eagles' habitat. Please visit http://wdfw.wa.gov/conservation/bald_eagle/ for current rules and regulations.
