A tax proposal, Initiative 1098, has been certified by the Washington State Elections Division and will appear on the November ballot. I-1098 would impose a state excise tax on personal adjusted gross incomes above $200,000 ($400,000 for couples), reduce the state portion of property taxes by 20% and reduce or eliminate the business and occupations (B&O) tax paid by small businesses.
