Let’s create a tax code that works for everyone

Thriving communities require dependable resources, where everyone pitches in their share. But our state tax code holds us back. People with middle and low incomes pay a higher share of taxes than the top 1 percent, and special interests get unnecessary tax breaks. Lawmakers need to fix our upside-down tax code and pass equitable, sustainable revenue reforms. And you can be part of the movement of Washingtonians who are calling for these reforms.
