The Washington Income Tax
Washington has no state income tax, so residents of Washington pay only the Federal Income Tax on most forms of income. In place of a state income tax, Washington generates revenue through other state taxes like the Washington Sales Tax and various excise taxes on the sale of certain goods.
Cities and municipal governments in Washington gain revenue through Washington property taxes and local sales tax surcharges.
While Washington collects no personal income tax, it does levy a Business & Occupation Tax on the gross receipts of almost all businesses located in the state. The tax amount varies by industry. There are 300 days left until Tax Day, on April 15th 2014.
