Why did Washington State Department of Revenue Partner with Orion?
The Washington State Department of Revenue has been a subscriber to the Computer Blue Book for many years. The Department is responsible for providing property tax valuation guidelines for the assessment and taxation of taxable personal property in Washington State. The Department develops guidelines annually for use by county assessors. Computer assessments have been controversial for many years due to the volatile nature and rapid decline in value that occurs after a computer is purchased. The Orion Personal Property Tax Valuation Guide provides needed market data, not sales but prices at various trade levels, to enable the Department to improve their guidelines concerning computer assets.

Orion Research Corporation draws on a 32-year history of publishing industry blue books, which has made them the established authority for listing the fair market value of growing and diverse groups of products. They have been listed in “The Wall Street Journal”, “The Los Angeles Times”, “US News and World Report”, and numerous other publications. Orion Research continues to be the industry standard for pricing. The growing line of Orion Research Corporation’s Industry Blue Books includes: Audio, Camera, Car Stereo, Computer, Copier, Guitar and Musical Instruments, Gun and Scopes, Power Tools, Professional Sound, Video and Television, and Vintage Guitars.
