In 2006, the Legislature enacted EHB 1069 which mandated audit reviews of Washington’s tax preferences. The 2007 reviews covered 22 tax preferences, including some of the state’s oldest tax preferences. The reviews are divided into expedited and full reviews, depending on the fiscal impact of the tax preference. The reports recommend continuation for 15 of the tax preferences reviewed; and clarification, modification, or termination is recommended for seven of the preferences. The preliminary reports were presented to JLARC in July; since then the Citizen Commission for Performance Measurement of Tax Preferences has conducted a public hearing on the reports and adopted comments about the JLARC staff recommendations. These comments are included in the proposed final reports.
