    • I would hazard to guess not at the state level. That is political kryptonite for the moment, but perhaps after 2018 or 2020. If Seattle is successful, local municipalities will probably follow suit on high-income earner income taxes.

      • Perhaps so; though I see the “kryponite” aspect of the tax as lessening as WA becomes less conservative.
