Legislators to hear from task force on local business tax & licensing simplification

With just a few meetings remaining, the task force on local business tax and licensing simplification continues to look for areas of compromise between cities and businesses. The path forward is not entirely clear as attention shifts to submitting a report to the Legislature before the end of the year.

In the meantime, House and Senate committees have asked for task force updates when legislators return to Olympia for meetings in November and December. Task force members representing the Department of Revenue, cities, and businesses will give panel presentations to the Senate Trade and Economic Development Committee on Tuesday, November 15, and to the House Finance Committee on Friday, December 2.

Look for updates here and in our next Legislative Bulletin, and please do not hesitate to contact AWC’s Victoria Lincoln or Serena Dolly with questions or feedback.
