Farmer’s Market Tax Exemption Bill – please support!

See below for information on the Farmer’s Market Tax Exemption Bill, from the Washington Association of Churches:

The Farmer’s Market Tax Exemption Bill (HB 2402) was heard in the House Finance Committee last Friday.┬áThe bill would exempt all non-profits (including churches) from property taxes incurred by hosting farmer’s markets on their property. Non-profits should not be punished for providing a needed community service, both for the local farmers and for the community members who want to buy fresh food and products from them.

If your legislator serves on this committee please urge them to bring this bill up for executive session and vote it out of committee.
