$88 million for out-of-state shoppers or kindergarten for thousands of Washington children?

Hey neighbor, can you spare 6%? We like visitors from Oregon, Montana, and Canada, and we like it when they shop here too, but not enough to pay their sales tax for them. That’s why we think it’s a pretty sweet deal to trade in the sales tax refund for out-of-state shoppers to save kindergarten for thousands of kids.

Out-of-state shoppers from states and provinces with a sales tax rate of less than 3 percent are not required to pay the sales tax on purchases made in Washington. By closing this loophole, we can save $88 million a year, enough to save the all-day kindergarten for thousands of kids in Washington.
