Question 1: Pro and con
Massachusetts voters are being asked this fall to vote on a proposed amendment to the state constitution to create an additional tax of 4% for income over $1 million, in addition to the existing 5% flat-rate income tax, and dedicate revenue to education and transportation purposes.
During this webinar, we will have a presentation in support of and opposing Question 1, which has been referred to as both the Fair Share and Millionaires' Tax.
- In support of a yes vote: Andrew Farnitano is a consultant at Crawford Strategies and serves as communications director for Fair Share for Massachusetts, the campaign working to pass Question 1 on the November ballot.
- In support of a no vote: Eileen McAnneny is President of the Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation, the state’s leading public policy organization focused on state finances and the state’s economy.
