RCW 43.17.095 Exempt Forms

Exemptions from Electronic Submission

According to RCW 43.17.095, any document, form, or payment of a fee that is required to be submitted by  business must be accepted electronically by the agency requiring it. There are certain circumstances in which a document, form, or payment of a fee may be excluded from the requirements of this statute including where it is not technically or fiscally feasible or practical, or in the best interest of businesses for such materials to be submitted electronically. If any document, form, or payment of fee is excluded, the public must be notified of the exclusion.

Below is a list of all excluded documents, forms, and payment of fees from the Juvenile Rehabilitation Administration (JRA) within the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS). If a document, form, or payment of a fee is submitted by a business to any division within JRA and is not on this list, the division must accept that submission in an appropriate electronic format. The electronic format available may vary depending on the requirements of the document, form, or payment of fee. For example, a document containing sensitive client information will need to be submitted in compliance with HIPAA whether it is submitted electronically or in paper format.
