On December 13th at 3 PM, Pierce County Council will hold a vote on whether to approve a 1/10th of 1% sales tax to support the development of affordable housing. This tax would generate an estimated $20M a year, and would only cost the average taxpayer $16 annually.
The Affordable Housing Consortium is in full support of this tax. See our Op-Ed in the Tacoma News Tribune urging Council for its adoption.
