About WA PIAPAC
Each year the Washington State Legislature considers dozens of proposals that would have a direct impact on the insurance products that you sell, the way that you conduct your business, and the regulatory and tax obligations that are applicable to you. Elections matter, and the issues that are important to you are directly affected by who the voters send to Olympia. In coming months campaign ads will be up on TV, political signs will be popping up in all of our neighborhoods, and candidates will be actively out shaking hands and talking about their priorities. What sometimes gets lost in all of the balloons, confetti, and banners are the big issues—and big risks—that matter for you and your clients.
As you know, two years ago (2013) licensed insurance agents and brokers faced down repeated tax increase proposals—including a proposal that would have raised the B&O taxes imposed on licensed insurance producers by a whopping 271%! The PIA successfully worked to defeat these damaging tax plans, but these threats will be back again…count on it.
Now is the time to get active! If you’d like to support candidates who are sensitive to your business concerns, and the concerns of your clients, now is the time to act. If you don’t think that agents and brokers should face a massive increase in their B&O taxes, now is the time to take action so that we can help to elect members to the Washington State Legislature who will respond to your concerns.
