In response to car tab registration and renewal fees, Rep. Mike Pellicciotti (D-Federal Way) introduced legislation to provide taxpayers relief.
HB 2147, sponsored by Pellicciotti, would use a more current motor vehicle depreciation schedule that would reduce the valuation for all vehicles. Taxes for drivers would drop under his bill. Drivers with cars more than 15 years old would face no increased tax.
Pellicciotti is also joining with Rep. Kristine Reeves (D-Federal Way) to co-sponsor HB 2150 that would require Sound Transit to update taxpayers on whether its actions remain on-budget and on-time.
Sound Transit 3 was a voter-approved initiative that passed last November.
