Bill Would Help Working Families Across the State

Posted by kimj at Feb 27, 2013 04:55 PM |

Today the House Finance Committee heard legislation that would give a tax break to more than 400,000 hard-working Washingtonians. House Bill 1890 would keep a promise to working families by closing a tax loophole for out-of-state shoppers and using the money to finally fund the Working Families Tax Rebate (WFTR).

Policy Analyst Kim Justice testified in support of the bill, here she is on TVW.

The WFTR was enacted in 2008, but never funded.  With a small investment, it would make a big difference in the lives of working families.

The Working Families Tax Rebate would benefit families in every legislative district in the state (click on map below). For a table of data by legislative district, click here.
