State taxes

Hello everyone. I have a client that is considering taking a contract job for a company based in Seattle, Washington but he is a Texas resident. He doesn't plan on moving but wants to know if he will have to pay Washington State taxes if he accepts the job. To my understanding he shouldn't have to because he's not a WA resident. Does anyone know how this will work or can you point me to resources where I can find the information?

State taxes

I'm happy to see you here in the Community, @wrightbs9518.


To verify if your client needs to pay the Washington State taxes, I recommend reaching out to their state agency. This is to ensure the best course of action for the client's taxes.


If he needs to pay taxes for WA, you may refer to these following link below on how to set up work locations in QuickBooks:

You can always reach out to me here if you have any other questions. It'd be my pleasure to help. Wishing you and your business continued success!
