State Annexation Sales Tax Credit Remains on Books After Special Session
The annexation sales tax credit was not included in state budget reductions adopted by the State Legislature earlier this week for the remainder of the 2011-13 biennium.
This means that the sales tax credit, which seven cities including Burien currently rely on, and which both Burien and Renton are counting on for new annexations, remains on the books.
The fate of this credit was a ‘go/no go’ factor for Burien to proceed with annexation of unincorporated North Highline – even though city lawmakers voted on April 2 to place the question before North Highline voters in the November general election.
