Beginning January 1, 2022, all non-exempt workers in Washington State will begin paying .58% of their pay into a trust to provide basic long term care services to qualified state residents. There are no caps to how much you pay into the trust. As your income goes up, the amount you pay into the trust increases.
Anyone who holds a private long term care insurance policy when the law goes into effect can apply for an exemption to the .58% tax. Many residents, especially those who are younger or have a higher income, will see equal or better coverage benefits than the trust at the same cost.
