Abstract

This Comment aims to give the reader a complete understanding of Washington’s Real Estate Excise Tax. Further, this Comment advocates replacing the current law. Specifically, this Comment argues that REET is in desperate need of repair; it then considers the options available to the Washington State Legislature in 1993. The Comment concludes that, with a few important alternations, the solution lies in a proposal that died in the House Revenue Committee in 1992.
