Seattle To Impose 'Head Tax' On City's Biggest Companies

On Monday the city council of Seattle, Washington voted to impose a new “head tax” on the city’s biggest companies, including Amazon.

According to the council, the tax is meant to battle a housing crisis in the area with sponsors saying a local economic boom has driven up real estate costs.

The measure, which was passed on a 9-0 vote, would raise roughly $47 million a year over the next five years to support affordable housing and services for the city's homeless.
