Sales Tax Increase
Did you know that effective yesterday (April 1st, no joke) the sales and use tax in King County has increased by one-tenth of one percent? Last April 1st (2007) we had a one-tenth of one percent increase as a result of voter approval to expand metro bus service, and this year the increase will be used for chemical dependency or mental health treatment services. It seems insignificant until you realize that now some areas , including Issaquah, are at 9%!
