One-Tenth of One Percent Programs
The Cowlitz County Board of County Commissioners approved the 1/10 of one-percent increase in sales tax on December 11, 2012. The tax is a result of Engrossed Second Substitute Senate Bill 5763 passed in 2005. This legislation created RCW 82.14.460 as an option for counties to raise the local sales tax by 1/10 of one-percent to augment funding for mental health and chemical dependency services and therapeutic courts. The Cowlitz County tax was established to address unmet needs in the community in three general categories:

1.    Drug Court and similar programs

2.    Child & Youth Services focused on prevention

3.    Services for Uninsured and Underinsured
