Municipalities included in this report were identified by the Washington Department of Revenue as recipients of lodging tax distributions during calendar year 2014.

The information presented in this report was reported by Washington cities, towns, and counties for calendar year 2014.  Although JLARC staff made considerable effort to provide guidance for consistency in how municipalities reported their use of lodging tax revenues, JLARC staff did not verify or analyze the information reported.  Any specific questions about the information should be directed to the individual municipalities.
