Washington Tax Laws

Federal, state, and local governments all collect taxes in a variety of ways. State revenues are comprised of property taxes, sales tax, and certain taxes on businesses. Additionally, states levy extra taxes on items such as liquor, tobacco products, and gasoline. In Washington, for example, gasoline is taxed at 55.9 cents per gallon, cigarettes are taxed at $3.25 per pack of 20, and sales tax is 6.5  percent. Taxes allow Washington and other states to provide essential services and maintain order. Click on a link below to learn more about the Evergreen State’s tax laws.
