There are several bills in play this session at the Washington Legislature which include a reduction in business-and-occupation (B&O) tax rates that will help our state's manufacturers. These bills represent a unique opportunity for our state to encourage production of family-wage jobs, and further economic development in our rural and urban communities. The various proposals would help small- and medium-sized manufacturers expand, invest in their workforce, and hire, and the industry needs our support right now.
Here's how you can help:
- Write to your state lawmakers today using our convenient email writing tool to urge them to take action to support tax relief for manufacturers. You can also share how this would personally impact your business.
- Share our letter-writing tool with friends and family and encourage them to contact their representatives as well.
