Call to Action Opportunity
A new payroll tax is being introduced in the City Council that may impact you and your business. The tax imposes a 1.3% tax on payroll for any Seattle company with a payroll greater than $7 million. Please check out the recent Times editorial and Danny Westneat article that do a nice job of framing the issue.
We wanted to provide you information about this proposed tax and the different ways you can make your voice heard. Your stories make a difference in demonstrating the effects of the tax. Here are three ways you can voice your concerns and the impacts of the new tax especially in the current economic uncertainty:
1.) Sign this letter calling on the Council to reject this tax on jobs and to focus on economic recovery.
2.) Send in your own comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
3.) Sign the Change.org petition from No Tax on Jobs – Recovery Now.
We encourage you to watch Downtown Seattle Association’s Webinar to learn more about the tax proposal and the potential effects on our economy.
