OLYMPIA – June 19, 2015 – Consumers in Clallam County will pay a little less in sales tax, while those in the city of Dayton will pay a little more on purchases starting July 1.
Shoppers in Clallam County will pay two-tenths of one percent less in sales and use tax for a total tax rate of 8.2 percent. The reduction reflects the county’s decision to reduce its Optional Tax component, from a half a percent to three-tenths of a percent. The Optional Tax is imposed by local cities and counties and isn’t project or use-specific. The rate change only affects unincorporated Clallam County. Local sales tax rates within the cities of Forks, Port Angeles and Sequim will not change.
Consumers in the city of Dayton will now pay an 8.3 percent sales tax. That’s an increase of two-tenths of one percent. The increased tax receipts will help support a new transportation benefit district.
