Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session

Subject: Corporate Net Income Tax Reducation Legislation - former HB 1780
In the near future, I plan to reintroduce legislation amending the Tax Reform Code to reduce Pennsylvania’s Corporate Net Income Tax (CNIT) to a more competitive rate.

As many of you know, Pennsylvania’s CNIT rate of 9.99% is currently the second highest in the nation. This places our Commonwealth at a disadvantage when it comes to attracting new businesses, which in turns adversely effects our economic growth and employment rates. Specifically, my legislation will gradually reduce the CNIT over a five-year period from its current 9.99% rate, to a much more competitive 4.99% rate.

Please join me in sponsoring this important legislation.
