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.
