Our February edition of the Civic Engagement Series will look at proposals around progressive taxation and how it could impact small businesses. Our state's tax code is famously recognized as one of the most regressive in the country - that is, the poorest are shouldered with the highest relative burden while the richest have the lowest relative burden. While an income tax is often the focus of these conversations, other forms of taxation have their own impacts, including the Business & Occupation Tax, capital gains, sales tax, property tax, and more.

Dean Carlson, Senior Tax Policy Coordinator with the WA Department of Revenue, will be starting us off with an overview of Washington's tax system.

Representative Noel Frame will be joining us to talk about the work she has led for the last several years on the Washington State Tax Structure Working Group, which has identified options to make the tax code more equitable, adequate, stable, and transparent.

You can join the Civic Engagement Series webinar either on Zoom or Facebook Live.

Thank you to Amazon for sponsoring our 2021 Civic Engagement Series.
