Fix Washington’s Upside Down Tax Code!

It’s time to clean up the tax code to make sure we build a strong foundation for Washington - and the House Democratic budget is a good step in the right direction. Please support closing the tax break on capital gains and other wasteful tax breaks to pay for a great future for all Washingtonians, rather than funding education at the expense of thriving communities.

Powerful special interests have manipulated the tax code by inserting tax breaks and special deals that benefit themselves. This means working families and the middle class pay as much as 7 times the rate the wealthiest pay.

It doesn’t have to be this way – together, we can pass new rules that make the wealthy and powerful pay what they owe and we can invest more in our communities. Urge your legislators to consider some of the ways we can clean up the tax code:

• We can join 42 other states and close the capital gains tax break on the profits from the sale of luxury investments, stocks, and bonds which benefit only the wealthiest households
• We can close some of our almost 700 special tax breaks that benefit special interests and corporations
• We can reform our business and occupation tax rate to apply to a broader range of services, such as those provided by accounts, attorneys, and consultants
• We can enact a new tax on carbon pollution associated with the production of fossil fuels
