This is going on in Seattle with what is known as a "Head Tax".[mynorthwest.com] This is proposed to aid the homeless crisis. There is a lot of contention and from what I have read I am against it. It has been said it is the wrong way to deal with our problems. Since tRump's tax break lowered corporate taxes is is better for cities/states to raise their B & O tax to make up for the shortfall. BTW Oregon has no sales tax, only an income tax. Washing is the reverse. California has both and yet all 3 states always have a shortfall. I also disagree with the way we handle homeless issue but this is another matter.
