Issue:

This week Washington state House Democrats unveiled their proposed two-year budget, which includes a repeal of the preferential business and occupation tax (B&O) rate of 0.275 percent on travel agent and tour operator commission income. This means travel advisor commission income would be taxed at the 1.5 percent rate for services, which would cost the average Washington travel agency $29,000 per year. The feedback we've gotten is that legislators think they are targeting Expedia only with this change, so it's critical that every Washington travel advisor contact their legislator today to fight this tax increase. Act now!
