Commercial Parking Tax

Seattles commercial parking tax is levied upon a person who pays to park a motor vehicle in a commercial parking lot within Seattle city limits. From July 1, 2008 to June 30, 2009, the tax rate will be 7.5%. After July 1, 2009, the rate will be 10%. The commercial parking business is required to show the commercial parking tax amount separately from the parking fee on the parking ticket or receipt (although the receipt may show a combined amount for the commercial parking tax and the retail sales tax). Revenue from the commercial parking tax will be used by the City only to fund the maintenance and improvement of local transportation infrastructure.
