Now will you come to Tacoma? New tax credit takes aim at Seattle's new head tax

May 22, 2018View for printing

Bruce Kendall said Monday his phone at the Economic Development Board for Tacoma-Pierce County has been ringing steadily since last week's vote by the Seattle City Council to tax big businesses $275 per employee.

"I've received inquiries over the last week from companies that have indicated they are exploring options for locations in Pierce County," Kendall said. "And they are telling me that's why they are calling me, because the head tax passed."

Now companies have another reason to call: A $275 tax credit per employee for new, family-wage jobs.
