Q&A: Tax advice for the wealthy if voters pass Initiative 1098

The Puget Sound Business Journal‘s Greg Lamm just published a four question Q&A with Jay Turley, a certified financial planner at Breakwater Investment Management.  Lamm asks how I-1098 would affect Turley’s clients, many of whom are high-net worth individuals, should it pass.

This particular article isn’t behind the Journal’s paywall, so you can read the entire Q&A without a subscription. Here’s the first question and answer:

Q: What are your clients’ major concerns about this income tax?

Turley: While a few clients have expressed reluctance about new taxes, a far more common concern is the quality of public education, from kindergarten through the state-run universities. Clients spend a tremendous amount of money moving to neighborhoods with better schools or paying for private schools. I believe that people are encouraged that Initiative 1098 will deliver dedicated dollars to improve Washington public schools.
