WHAT IS THE NEW SALES TAX AND HOW CAN IT BE USED?

  • A new 0.2% (2/10 of 1%) sales tax on purchases beginning April 1, 2024 through December 31, 2054. For every $10 spent by residents, visitors, and tourists in Spokane County, an additional .02¢ will be collected. The retail sale or use of motor vehicles, and the lease of motor vehicles for up to the first thirty-six months of the lease, are exempt from this tax.

  • 60% of the collected funds will be allocated to Spokane County government and 40% provided to cities and towns within Spokane County.

  • One-third of the revenue collected from this sales tax must be used for criminal justice purposes. The remaining two-thirds of revenues collected may be spent on criminal justice, public safety, or behavioral health purposes.
