One of the greatest advantages of living in Washington State is that it is one of the seven US states that does not collect personal income tax. The city of Seattle, one of the largest cities in the US, is also home to about 60 percent of the state’s population.

The state of Washington offers excellent employment opportunities and is home to some of the best-known Fortune 500 companies such as Amazon, Costco, Microsoft, Starbucks, Paccar, REI, and Nordstrom.
