Seattle city councilmember proposes income tax on 'the rich'

Washington state residents pay both federal and state income taxes. There is no city-level income tax in the state, because municipal income taxes are banned by the state constitution.

However, some lawmakers in Seattle are challenging the notion that they cannot impose an income tax on city residents. The “Tax the Rich” movement is seeking a 2 percent tax on income above $250,000 for individuals and $500,000 for couples.
