The Chelan City Council voted to approve the Main Street B&O tax contribution proposal at their meeting last week- that will keep about 80 thousand dollars of tax money local.
In 2005, Washington State legislation created the "Main Street Tax Credit Incentive Program." Through the program, businesses are eligible to take a B&O tax credit for contributions given to eligible downtown revitalization organizations, including Historic Downtown Chelan Association.
