What Is the Fair Share Amendment?
The Fair Share Amendment, or Question 1, would create a 4 percent tax on the portion of a person’s annual income above $1 million and dedicate the funds raised to public education and transportation.
The amendment, Question 1, will allow Massachusetts to improve our transportation and public education systems by making the very rich pay their fair share.
Only people who earn more than $1 million annually will pay this additional income tax; 99 percent of us won’t pay a penny more. And we’ll all benefit from better schools, roads, bridges, and public transportation.
On Election Day, November 8, vote YES on 1.
