Abstract

In 2006, the Legislature enacted EHB 1069 which mandated audit reviews of Washington’s tax preferences. There are two reports detailing the review of 25 statutory references to tax preferences for 2009.  The reviews are divided into expedited and full depending on the size of the tax preference.  Full tax preference performance reviews answer ten primary questions outlined in law and the expedited tax preference performance reviews answer four questions.  All tax preference performance reviews place an emphasis on whether the preference has met its public policy objectives.
