Seattle’s new “JumpStart” Tax is a payroll tax applied to businesses operating in Seattle with at least $7 million in annual payroll on employee compensation greater than $150,000 p/a.

“Organizations in the greater Seattle area should pay particular attention to the extent that work location drives the application of the JumpStart Tax just as much as payroll and compensation. Taxpayers can realize substantial tax savings by identifying work performed outside of the city limits. Technology-based solutions can help organizations do this at scale and protect in event of audits.”
