ALERT: Time is Running Out to Opt-Out of the New WA State LTC Payroll Tax

ALERT: Time is Running Out to Opt-Out of the New WA State LTC Payroll Tax

by Richard Toban on July 22, 2021

Are you going to be paying 0.58% of your entire W-2 Compensation with NO Cap – and as long as you are paid W-2 compensation in Washington state?!

Thanks to the new WA state sponsored Long Term Care Trust, you will be, unless you put in place a qualified “opt-out” alternative plan.

TIME IS RUNNING OUT. August may be too late.

BE ALERT, qualified alternative plans take time to put into effect (sometime 2-3 months), so if you wait much longer, you will miss this one time opt-out date of Nov 1, 2021.

Starting January 1, 2022, Washington state will begin deducting this payroll tax to fund the new Long Term Care Trust. (for more information click here).
According to Rob McKenna, it is unlikely this will be repealed.  https://mynorthwest.com/3008176/mckenna-difference-clear-state-payroll-capital-gains-taxes/ The Legislature doesn’t meet again until January 2022 after the opt-out deadline and after the payroll deduction starts.

Don’t miss the limited one-time opt-out period.
You must have an alternative insurance coverage that qualifies. These plans take time to take affect.
So don’t be fooled by the November 1, 2021 deadline – since these plans could take 2-3 months – so August 2021 could be too late.
