Washington although doesn’t have state tax on your paycheck but there are other taxes. There used to be LNI (labor & industries) tax and starting this year there’s another tax - paid family & medical leave (PFML) that equates to 0.4% of your gross up to $132,900. Not to forget almost everything is taxed at 10.1% of sale price.
I also heard & read, WA LNI makes it extremely difficult to file claim for work related injuries. Then what’s the use of paying premium from your paycheck when it’s so difficult to get paid?
Is your employer deducting PFML tax from your paycheck?

- Seattle started having soda tax and it’s raking in multi million dollars every year, more than what they anticipated. Apparently they crossed the annual estimates within 1st three quarters of 2018. Politicians & municipalities are finding ways to charge taxes & so called insurances.
- Microsoft BiIlyGThey have you working in the mines at tableau? What work related injuries are we talking about here? WA is state income tax free, and 0.4% PFML tax is lower than 10-20% income tax
- Read carefully, no where there’s a comment about Tableau. It’s a great workplace. I’m talking in general about payroll deductions in the name of various insurances & taxes by WA & cities. Also, total comp usually is lower in Seattle compared to Bay Area or any other expensive state/city.Feb 70
