For those who dont know: Taxes 101 (Or maybe 102)

Washington State has one of the most archaic tax systems in the country.
For being such a seemingly progressive state – having an elected gay mayor, a well received marriage-equality law, and legalized pot – we can’t quite seem to figure out that our tax system, unlike our other chic merits, just doesn’t match our cool Washington vibe.
That’s because Washington has the most regressive tax system in the country.
