Is Washington a bad state for business or isn't it? For many, it's a matter of faith that Washington picks on businesses with a relentless list of taxes, led by the oft-maligned Business and Occupation tax.
The Tax Foundation, however, begs to differ. According to its newly released Tax Climate report card, Washington is the sixth-best state, in terms of business taxes.
The only states better, the foundation says, are: Wyoming, South Dakota, Nevada, Alaska and Florida.
