CHARTER AMENDMENT PROHIBITING A CITY OF SPOKANE INCOME TAX

Ballot Question:

Shall the Spokane City Charter be amended to prohibit the City of Spokane from imposing an income tax on wages, salaries, investments, the sale of goods or services, or any other income source?

 

Summary of Measure:

THE LAW AS IT CURRENTLY EXISTS: 

The City Charter and the Spokane Municipal Code do not address the imposition of a local income tax or the authority of the City Council to adopt legislation imposing a local income tax. The adoption of a local income tax by the City would be subject to the provisions of the Washington State Constitution and Washington State law.

 

THE EFFECT OF THE PROPOSAL, IF APPROVED:

This measure will amend the City Charter to provide that the City of Spokane may not impose an income tax on wages, salaries, investments, the sale of goods or services or any other source of income.
