The State of Washington shares revenues from several sources with counties, cities and towns across the state. These revenues come from a variety of sources - gas taxes, liquor taxes, marijuana taxes, etc. - and are typically distributed on a per capita basis. For a full discussion of these various sources, see the Budget Suggestions publication.
In our effort to assist local governments develop their budget forecasts, we provide estimates of the per capita revenues that the state is expected to distribute to cities and counties. This tool provides an easy way for your jurisdiction to see the expected amount of state shared revenues they will receive in the upcoming budget year. Note that historic distribution amounts, back to 2013, can be found on the Washington State Fiscal Distributions to Local Entities website.
