The Tax Structure Work Group meets next week in Spokane, Yakima and Vancouver.

The goal of this work group is to facilitate discussions about the current tax structure, with a focus on the business and occupation tax, and identify any options to improve the overall tax structure.

Each meeting will include a brief presentation by staff on the tax structure, followed by a small group discussion and report out, and then public testimony.
