- Know your tax reporting and payment responsibilities (e.g. tax due date) by going to the section “Filing due dates“.
- Mark your calendar with the tax due date and submit your report and payment before that date to avoid being assessed late payment penalties and to insure your payment is considered on time.
- We communicate primarily by email. Check your email and respond promptly to questions, missing report notices or send in your payment in upon receipt of our courtesy Balance Due Statement.
- Keep your contact information (e.g. telephone numbers, mailing address and email) with the WSLCB current. Send an email to email@example.com with your UBI and license numbers, old information and new information. Call our customer service staff, (360)664-1600 Option 1, to confirm and update your information.
The following information is required before we will start our review of the revised reports.

The LCB Finance Auditors may review your report and documents before accepting a revised report.
ACH payments / reports
The date you submit your payment request to the the Bank’s payment portal (Retail Lockbox) is the payment date entered in our system. You are not able to “schedule your payment” in this system. Please email your completed report (Retailer Sales and Tax Form) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mailed reports and payments.
Mailed reports must be post marked on or before the due date to be on time. To ensure a postmark date, we suggest that you go into the post office and request they date stamp the envelope. Please include a copy of your monthly sales/tax report when mailing your payment. You are not required to email your completed monthly sales/tax report, if you are mailing it with your payment.
Our mailing address is:
Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board
PO Box 43085
Olympia, WA 98504-3085
The 2% late payment penalty will be accessed on the account balance after the tax due date. When the due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or a legal holiday, the payment envelope must be postmarked by the U.S. Postal Service no later than the next business day.
Non-legible postmarks, postmarks that are difficult to read (light, blurred or incomplete), partially off the envelope so the date cannot be read, and received after the tax due date will be considered late and will be assessed a penalty. If the payment envelope does not have a post-mark date, the date received by the “LCB” is used.
To insure your account receives credit for your payment please have your license number listed on the check, insure the number amount and the written legal line match and sign your check. We will return your check if the legal line is blank or not signed.
To pay in person by a means other than check, money order(s) or cashier check, an appointment is required and you must have an approved and active waiver. Appointments are scheduled (at least 24 hours in advance) and only on the tax due date. Additional instructions are included in our monthly notice to those approved to pay using the payment room.
Request for waivers are to be submitted in writing by email or USPS, along with copies of one of the following documents:
- Bank account application.
- Bank account denial letter.
- Bank account cancellation letter.
Your documentation must be dated within the last 90 days and if from a bank / credit union include their name and address.
