ABOUT LODGING TAX USAGE
RCW 67.28.1816 requires that local governments annually report lodging tax expenditures including information about expenditures of lodging tax revenue. The Joint Legislative Audit and Review Committee (JLARC) has established an online reporting system to collect data about lodging tax expenditures as required by state law. Municipalities may also report that they had no lodging tax expenditures during the calendar year.
HOW TO REPORT LODGING TAX USAGE
Lodging Tax Expenditure Reporting System
In light of the current public health issues, JLARC staff are extending the reporting deadline for 2019 to
9/1/2020. Municipalities may enter and edit data until this date.
A preview of statewide expenditure data will be available beginning 7/27/2020 to help municipalities ensure the technical accuracy of their data.
