B&O Tax Credit Program

Direct your tax dollars back into your community

Main Street Tax Credits are a way of ensuring your tax dollars are invested in your downtown community.

Make a pledge of as little as $1,000 to Puyallup Main Street Association beginning January 13, 2020, pay the pledge to PMSA by November 15th and 75% of your pledge will be deducted from your Washington Business and Occupation tax obligation.

For example: A pledge of $1,000 equals a tax credit of $750 in January of 2020. Because Puyallup Main Street Association is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organizations, other tax incentives may apply. Check with your accountant for further details.

As you consider this request, if you have questions….or your colleagues have questions, please have them call the PMSA office at (253) 840-2631 or email us at director@puyallupmainstreet.com.
