Washington’s tax code
is upside down
In Washington, we move forward by pulling together, no matter our race or income level. But for generations, wealthy corporations and special interests have fought for laws aimed at lining their own pockets and keeping wealth out of the hands of Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) communities, working people, and small Businesses.
The COVID-19 health and economic crises have magnified those existing and deeply rooted inequities. More than 25% of adults in Washington are facing difficulty meeting household expenses and hundreds of thousands of people are out of work.
In the 2021 legislative session, state elected leaders must act with urgency to build a tax system that enables us to meet the needs of all Washingtonians, no exceptions.
