AMENDMENT NO. 1 TO THE WASHINGTON MULTI-CITY BUSINESS LICENSE <br /> AND TAX PORTAL AGENCY INTERLOCAL AGREEMENT <br /> BY AND BETWEEN THE CITIES OF <br /> BELLEVUE,EVERETT,SEATTLE,AND TACOMA <br /> This Amendment modifies that certain Washington Multi-City Business License and Tax <br /> Portal Agency Interlocal Agreement, dated March 1, 2014 ("ILA"), entered into by and between <br /> the Cities of Bellevue, Everett, Seattle,and Tacoma(collectively, the "Original Principals"). <br /> WHEREAS, Section 13.g. of the ILA provides a method for allocating Agency costs <br /> among the Original Principals for the years 2014-2018, and another method for the years 2019- <br /> 2021; and <br /> WHEREAS,the Original Principals now desire to amend Section 13.g.of the ILA to revise <br /> how Agency costs are allocated among them during the years 2019-2021, so that the allocation <br /> method used in years 2014-2018 may continue to be used through 2021; and <br /> WHEREAS, Section 18 of the ILA allows amendments to the ILA,and specifically allows <br /> amendments affecting the contribution responsibilities of the Principals, so long as such <br /> amendments are approved by the legislative authorities of all Principals; <br /> NOW THEREFORE,the Original Principals hereby agree to amend the ILA as follows: <br /> 1. Section 13.g. of the ILA is hereby amended to read as follows: <br /> g. Cost Allocation and Cost Recovery Principles. The PORTAL AGENCY <br /> budget shall be generally allocated between all Participating Cities based on the number <br /> of Transactions processed for each City on the Portal. In years 2014 through 2021, the <br /> number of Transactions for the Original Principals shall be based on 2012 historical <br /> actual pre-Portal use Transaction Counts(as set forth in Exhibit A). In years 2014 through <br /> 2018, the City Transaction Count for any other Participating City shall be based on the <br /> most recent historical data for that City prior to it joining the Portal. From and after 2019, <br /> the allocation among other Participating Cities will be determined by considering the <br /> actual number of Transactions (if the City had joined before 2019), historical tax and <br /> license information, and the experience of the Original Principals as to how quickly <br /> businesses have adopted use of the Portal since its launch. The details of the cost allocation <br /> calculation shall be set forth in the Portal Operations Policy. Nothing in this Agreement <br /> shall be construed to prohibit the Executive Board from including factors in addition to the <br /> number of City Transactions in the cost allocation formulas as between Participating <br /> Cities, so long as the primary basis for allocation remains the City Transaction count. <br /> 2. All other terms of the ILA remain in full force and effect. <br /> Page 1 of 2 <br />
