Thank you for taking the time to learn more about how Carbon Washington's proposal would impact your business
We'll ask you a few questions about your business expenses in order to best calculate how your household would be affected. We encourage you to skip around and to change your estimates to see how that affects the result.

If your business is not a manufacturer, please skip to Gasoline and Diesel Usage
The CarbonWA proposal effectively eliminates B&O taxes on manufacturing activities covered by RCW 82.04.240 (general manufacturing), RCW 82.04.2404 (semiconductors), and RCW 82.04.260 (1), (2), (4), (11), or (12)(b) (food products, timber and wood products, and airplanes). Because of the Multiple Activities Tax Credit, manufacturing B&O taxes may qualify as credits against other B&O taxes, or other B&O taxes may qualify as credits against your manufacturing B&O taxes.
For many manufacturers, the amount you would save is likely to be the state manufacturing B&O taxes you paid on goods sold outside the state; goods sold inside the state receive the Multiple Activities Tax Credit.
