Our tax code doesn’t generate sufficient resources for our communities
Washington’s tax code is upside-down. What does that mean?
It’s December. The days are shorter. The nights are darker. Washingtonians across the state don their warmest clothes, grip their coffee cups a little tighter, and try to remember what it’s like to see the sun set after five o’clock.
