Seattle has repealed the employee head tax that was scheduled to take effect in 2019.
The tax would have been imposed at a rate of $275 per full-time employee on businesses with at least $20 million annually in taxable gross receipts. The tax would have been used to combat homelessness.
Additional information on the repeal can be found on the city council’s website at https://www.seattle.gov/council/issues/progressive-tax-on-business.
