The Fair Share

is Question 1 on the statewide ballot on November 8!

This is our chance to improve our transportation and public education systems by making the very rich pay their fair share in taxes.

This is how we build an economy that works for everyone.
Question 1 is a win-win for Massachusetts.

About Question 1

Asset 3.png
Question 1, the Fair Share Amendment, would create a 4% tax on the portion of a person’s annual income above $1 million and require – in the state constitution – that the funds be spent only on transportation and public education.
With Question 1, the top 1% of Massachusetts residents — those making over $1 million a year — would pay their fair share in taxes. 99% of us won’t pay a penny more.
And because Question 1 will be written directly into the state constitution, the money would be constitutionally required to go only to transportation and public education. That means $2 billion a year, every year, for better roads, safer bridges, reliable public transportation, and public schools from pre-K through college. 
On November 8, vote YES on 1.
