Our current upheaval is the perfect time for Washington state to completely reform our tax structure and finally instigate a state income tax. As part of the package, our very regressive sales taxes should be greatly reduced. And if possible, also our prohibitive property and vehicle taxes.
We need a progressive tax structure that is fair. This would greatly help reduce the huge wealth disparity we currently have in our state.
We can do better.
