Where the taxes are

Interesting graphic from Thursday’s Seattle Times showing how dependent each of Washington’s counties is on property taxes.

Note the curiosity: King County is the least dependent (except for tiny San Juan County) on this unpopular tax. And it has been the bastion of opposition to Initiative 747 and other measures aimed at cutting property taxes.

Must be nice to have such a large industrial and commercial tax base that property taxes aren’t such a big deal.
