Making cents of the ST3 sales tax increase

 

Last updated 4/7/2017 at Noon



The sales and use tax within the City of Mill creek increased one half of one percent (from 9.9 to 10.4 percent) on April 1 to fund rapid transit in three counties.

The boost works out to a 5-cent increase per $10 spent in Mill Creek. This voter-approved tax increase – known as the ST3 tax – will not supplement the city’s budget. It will be used by Sound Transit to expand and coordinate light-rail, commute-rail, and express bus service, and will improve access to transit facilities in Snohomish County, King County and Pierce County.
