Tell the Arlington County Board to reject any bid or proposal that would give any taxpayer-funded subsidies or tax incentives, such as tax breaks, credits, or abatements, to Amazon's HQ2, whether they are being provided by the county or the state.

Arlington County, Virginia is currently part of the Northern Virginia bid for Amazon's HQ2. (UPDATE 11/10, Arlington will likely become one of two sites for HQ2).

While we cannot stop Amazon from coming to Arlington should they chose to, we do not have to provide them incentives funded by taxpayers to relocate. 

The reasons for opposing the bid are plentiful:

While Arlington/NoVA/Virginia has not released the tax incentives, the offers from other cities make it clear that they will be receiving billions in tax incentives. Maryland is promising up to $8.5 billion in tax incentives from the state; Newark and New Jersey up to $7 billion; Atlanta and Chicago between $1 and $2 billion. 

Sign the petition to demand that the Arlington County Board reject any bid or proposal that would give any taxpayer-funded subsidies or tax incentives, such as tax breaks, credits, or abatements, to Amazon's HQ2, whether they are being provided by the county or the state.
