Historical Increases in the July Implicit Price Deflator for Personal Consumption Expenditures

The rate of inflation is the percent change in the implicit price deflator for personal consumption expenditures published by the BEA by September 25th of the year before the taxes are payable. The most recent publication available on September 25th was the August publication. The Washington State Department of Revenue has therefore established the use of the quarterly values to calculate the percentage change in IPD for taxes dues. 

Note that the Bureau of Economic Analysis uses anywhere from one to three decimal places.
