Crowdfailure: Not a Single Company Has Been Able to Use Washington's 2-year-old Crowdfunding Law

Washington state lawmakers passed a law to legalize crowdfunding—a system similar to websites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo, but where companies sell equity instead of promising rewards in exchange for donations—more than two years ago. The goal was to help entrepreneurs get their small businesses off the ground. Since then, though, not a single company has been able to use the law to raise money. Meanwhile, 30 other states have similar—and, in many cases, more successful—crowdfunding mechanisms. Oregon, for example, has crowdfunded 17 companies in little more than a year since the state passed crowdfunding rules.

Pay Your Property Taxes "Under Protest" to Preserve Your Entitlement to a Possible Refund

If the owner of the property feels that the taxes being levied are unlawful or excessive in whole or in part, the taxes must be paid "under written protest." The law in Washington requires the written protest to set forth all of the grounds upon which the tax is claimed to be unlawful or excessive. It is not sufficient to write "paid under protest" or any similar notation on the face of the check in payment of the taxes. Instead, the protest requirement can best be satisfied by writing a letter that will accompany the check and will notify the county of the protest and explain the reasons why the taxes are being paid under protest as required by law.
