What is the Washington Cares Fund, and how does that impact me?

Starting on January 1, 2022, the state of Washington is issuing a new payroll tax for all individuals working within the state. The Washington Cares Fund is a mandatory tax taken during payroll. You’ll see a new tax line on your paystub showing the tax amount you have contributed to this new fund. This tax will be 0.58% of your total earnings. That means for each $100 you earn, $0.58 will be taxed.
