Income tax ban

By Jason Mercier
Feb 23, 2022 

There are now at least 26 local governments in Washington with an income tax ban. This week Cowlitz County and Lincoln County commissioners unanimously adopted resolutions opposing a local income tax. There are now at least 11 counties (Asotin, Benton, Chelan, Cowlitz, Douglas, Franklin, Grant, Kittitas, Lincoln, Spokane, and Yakima) and 15 cities (Battle Ground, Benton City, DuPont, Grand Coulee, Granger, Kennewick, Longview, Moses Lake, Pasco, Richland, Spokane, Spokane Valley, Union Gap, West Richland and Yakima) with local income tax bans.

Joining these local governments in advertising no income tax as being a benefit for employers and employees are Sound Transit and Washingtons Department of Commerce.

As more cities and counties act to ban a local income tax, hopefully this clear and consistent message opposing an income tax will finally be heard by state lawmakers and the Governor.
