Stronger Families. Stronger Communities. Stronger Washington

Over the past thirty (30) years, Washington State’s tax structure has changed dramatically. For instance, this past year, the Legislature passed (and Governor signed) the Income Tax on Capital Gains. What do you think Washington State should do to improve the current tax structure? Take the survey!

In 2017, the Washington State Legislature established the Tax Structure Work Group (TSWG) to identify options to make the Washington State tax code more fair, adequate, stable, and transparent. As of 2019, the TSWG is comprised of bipartisan Washington State legislators, as well as representatives from the Governor’s Office, the Washington State Department of Revenue, the Washington State Association of Counties (WSAC), and the Association of Washington Cities (AWC). The TSWG facilitates public discussions throughout the state about the advantages and disadvantages of the state’s current and potential tax structure to inform recommendations to improve Washington State’s tax structure to benefit individuals, families, and businesses in Washington State.
