The JumpStart Tax is a blow to Amazon, which fought the passage of a so-called head tax in 2018 via a well-financed referendum campaign alongside other Seattle businesses.

"Over the last three months, state governments have implemented Stay at Home Orders and business closures in an effort to slow the spread of coronavirus infections in our nation, while inflicting a serious blow to their state economies and revenues. With state income and sales taxes being the primary source of revenue for so many states and the massive job and business revenue losses accompanying the shut-downs, future state budgets will suffer like never before."
