|Subject:||Mobile Telecommunications Update|
|In 2002 the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania updated the definition of mobile telecommunications in order to keep up with recent changes in technology. These definitions are important as it defines the scope of what is subject to either the state’s gross receipt tax under section 1101 of Article 11 of the Tax Reform Code.
The definitions used by the state for the purpose of has remained unchanged for approximately 15 years while the technology subject to that definition has remained in a state of constant change. In recognition of these changes in technology, I plan to introduce legislation to clarify this definition of telecommunications. Under this legislation; the definition of taxes under Article 11 Section 1101 would mirror the definition used under the sales and use tax. This change not only creates uniformity within our tax code, but clarifies an outdated part of the state’s tax code.
Please join me and co-sponsors this legislation. Should you have any questions please contact Jordan Grant by phone at 717-767-3947 or by email at Jgrant@pahousegop.com.
