Pack City Hall: First Hearing on Seattle Progressive Income Tax

  • Seattle City Hall 600 4th Avenue Seattle, WA, 98104 United States

Public hearing begins at 9am. Arrive at 8:00 or 8:30 to get a seat and sign up to speak!

A progressive income tax targeting wealthy households will be discussed for the first time at this special meeting of the Affordable Housing, Neighborhoods, and Finance Committee. After the public comment there will be a panel discussion including coalition representatives, tax experts, and the councilmembers on the committee.

Now, when actual legislation is introduced, is when we can expect strong opposition to emerge and some councilmembers to start getting cold feet. So...

Let's pack City Hall on May 31st to show our representatives on the City Council that Seattle residents want our city to take the lead in challenging our upside-down tax system, raising new revenue to protect against Trump budget cuts and to make Seattle a city for everyone, not just for the rich!
