Carla Howell and her group in Massachusetts conducted a petition drive in Mass in 2001 to end the State Income Tax. They got the question on the ballot and got 45% of the vote in 2002...in Massachusetts!! Now they are starting another petition drive to get it back on the ballot for 2008.
2002 : Our first End the Income Tax Initiative in Massachusetts got 885,683 votes – 45.3%. We did it with volunteers, a small budget, and advertising spending of less than $89,000.
