In May 2018 the Business and Human Rights Resource Centre reported that "Amazon opposes Seattle tax proposal meant to address the state of emergency over homelessness".
It stated, "Amazon halted construction plans on a development site in the northern end of the city and vowed that it would forgo additional space it recently leased if the council approves the tax, which is intended to raise $75 million a year".
The company lost half a mark under Political Activities.
