Become a Tax Credit Contributor

Tax Credit Contributors make big impacts on our downtown. 
Learn how you can do something good for you and your community. 


 

As part of a Nationally Certified Main Street Community, your business can designate its Business & Occupation (B&O) or Public Utility tax (PUT) to be spent directly on Downtown Kennewick.

To receive the tax credit through Washington State’s Main Street Tax Credit Incentive Program, you apply to give the Historic Downtown Kennewick Partnership, a 501(c)3, a donation through Washington State. Once the request is approved by the Department of Revenue, you are eligible to claim a tax credit worth 75% of the contribution (up to your total tax liability) the following year. Your donation must be received by November 15, and can be paid in installments.
