The State of Washington's Department of Revenue regulates contractor registration and sales/use tax collection as a result of the Selective Sales Tax Act of 1937 and the Use Tax Act of 1937.

A non-resident contractor is a contractor that has not been a legal resident of Wyoming for at least one year prior to bidding on a project. Non-resident contractors must have a surety bond in place as a guarantee that they will report and pay to the state all sales and use taxes, plus any penalties and interest owed.
