The city of Seattle is directly challenging Washington State with an income tax measure that’s drawing national attention. On Monday the Seattle City Council passed an income tax of 2.25 percent on earnings above $250,000 for individuals and $500,000 for couples. The vote was a unanimous 9-0, and the taxes would bring in around $140 million a year. Only problem is, it’s unclear whether the City Council is even allowed to propose such a change. As The Seattle Times makes clear, “The state constitution says taxes must be uniform within a class of property; a 1984 state law bars cities from taxing net income; and cities must have state authority to enact taxes.” Not helping matters is the fact that voters in Washington State – one of only seven states that do not tax income -- have been confronted with an income tax proposal before and clearly expressed their displeasure: In 2010 a “tax the rich” initiative was put on the ballot and easily defeated. That said, a recent Seattle-specific poll showed strong support for the measure, which is expected to face a flurry of lawsuits over its legality. Over the last week, “Seattle + Income Tax” has a 74 percent positive score on Social.
