Companies in Washington are warning their employees about a new state tax that will be taken from their paychecks beginning the first of next year. That tax will raise money for a new government long-term care plan called WA Cares.
 
Beginning in 2025, the plan will pay benefits to enrollees who need help with non-hospital-based health care expenses.
