We want you to pass a wealth tax on Washington billionaires during the 2023 session.
Corporations are raising prices to make record profits and huge CEO paychecks.
Small businesses and workers pay our share in Washington taxes but the super rich don’t.
It’s time to make Washington’s ultra-rich pay their share for our schools, health care, and affordable housing.
During the pandemic the wealthy in WA have become even richer. The rich use their power to rig the tax system for themselves. Then they can get away with paying as little as possible.
Meanwhile, the poorest 25% of us – including frontline healthcare and retail workers – pay nearly 18% of their income in WA state sales and property taxes.
Until we require the wealthiest pay their share, we will keep relying on Washington’s lowest-income residents to fund our schools, hospitals, and roads.
We must fix Washington State’s upside-down tax code. We came together to pass capital gains, a small tax on their massive stock market profits.
Now, we must keep working together.
We call on you to pass a wealth tax on Washington’s billionaires. Put people and communities first.
