The Washington State Property and Income Taxes Amendment, also known as House Joint Resolution 6, was on the November 3, 1970 ballot in Washington as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was defeated. The measure would have fixed the maximum rate of property taxation at 1% and would have imposed a state income tax at a single rate for all individuals and a single rate for all corporations. The measure would have amended Section 2 of Article VII of the Washington Constitution.
