Well the "Head Tax" applies to any business doing 20 million or more in revenue, Amazon's last quarter was 1.3 billion, so there are a lot more firms in Seattle subject to the tax.
Microsoft comes out smelling like a rose because their headquarters are in Redmond across the lake.
The city of Seattle added a tax to guns and ammunition 2 years ago and ran all the guns stores out of the city and into the suburbs. Seattle has an insatiable appetite for other people's money.
