STOP Increase on Real Estate Taxes

Please take a moment to contact Governor Gregoire as soon as possible today and stress the importance of not increasing taxes on Real Estate.

There are 3 ways to get a message to the Governor's office.

1: Go to and send a message.

2: Call the Communications Hotline at (360) 902-4136

3: Send a fax at (360) 753-4110

Please include the following points in your message:

- The new proposal to increase the Business and Occupation Tax (B&O) rate on real estate is unfair to our industry, which is suffering through 30% job losses and 50% income reductions in many parts of the state.

- It is critical to realize that the proposed expansion of the B&O small business tax credit provides no relief for individual real estate agents. Many real estate agents are below the tax credit cap, but do not qualify based on how B&O tax is calculated and paid by the real estate industry.

- The real estate industry is critical to economic recovery and job growth in our state. We are doing everything we can to stay in business and need your support.
