Per George Harris, the Northwest Marine Trade Association (NMTA) President and CEO)
This morning I testified before the Senate Transportation Committee opposing a new proposal to double the watercraft excise tax. This is the tax Washington boaters pay annually when they register their boats.
Boaters are the only user group that pay an excise tax and we think it is unfair and inappropriate to increase this tax.
The funds from this Vessel Excise Tax go directly into the state general fund.
