Art collectors go untaxed in Washington

An investigation by the Seattle Post-Intelligencer found that "millions of dollars in purchases by Washington art collectors have gone untaxed, and that an agent's effort to collect that revenue was squelched by upper management at the Department of Revenue, then suspended late last year." A week after the Post-Intelligencer first reported the story, the Department of Revenue announced that it will begin to aggressively pursue art collectors who do not pay the taxes they owe on works purchased out of state.
