No More Property Taxes?

New, 1 comment

Bills have been introduced in the Pennsylvania state legislature to get rid of property taxes entirely and increase the sales tax (to 7 percent) instead. There'd also be more taxable items in the state, and—in what's sure to be seen as the most popular suggestion—a proposed rise in the wage tax from 3.07 percent to 4.01 percent. Would Philadelphians get on board? The Inky's Anthony R. Wood writes that the city seems to be "a property-tax revolt waiting to happen." [Inquirer]
