April 17 was the deadline to file our income taxes – but for some Boston-area corporations Tax Day never comes. Despite billion-dollar profits, these corporations avoid taxation. Some of them even managed to rake in hundreds of millions in tax refunds. This rampant corporate tax dodging is bankrupting our communities, forcing mass layoffs, slashing vital services and closing schools and community centers.
Enough is enough. It’s time for big businesses and the wealthiest amongst us to pay their fair share, just like the rest of us do. On Tax Day, Local 509 members took to the streets with a clear message for corporations and the 1%: PAY YOUR TAXES!
Joined by MassUniting, community groups, and other SEIU Locals, we sent a message to Massachusetts corporations that it’s time for them to pay their share.
