The change is among several tax revisions as Washington and 40 other states try to streamline and simplify their sales tax rules.
Simplicity, however, ain't so simple. Among the other changes:
-Sparkling water and club soda, both currently taxed because they're carbonated, will no longer be taxed -- unless they contain sweeteners.
-If takeout food is heated or served with utensils, it's taxable.
-If the seller combines two or more ingredients, it's taxable.
-And our favorite: crushed, shaved, or cubed ice: no tax. But if it's a block of ice, you pay tax.
