Seattle faces widening income inequality and the nation’s worst gender pay gap. While the Seattle area is home to some of the most profitable corporations in the world, we have the most regressive tax system in the nation and severely underfunded public services.
● We need a Millionaires’ Tax to fund mass transit, education, and social services!
● Tax large corporations to fund public services. Under existing law, this can be done with a major increase in developer impact fees, an employer “head tax,” an increased tax on commercial parking lot owners, and “excise taxes” on banks, big box retailers, and franchise businesses.
● No corporate welfare and developer handouts! Reduce the unfair tax burden on working people, homeowners, and small businesses.
