PA Ranked 26th For Tax Burden
This week, Governor Rendell spoke at a press conference to a new study by the Tax Foundation, which ranked Pennsylvania 26th among states for overall tax burden. Among nearby states, we are second to worst after Delaware.
As reported by PLS, the Governor said the study was based on the state's statutory 9.99% corporate net income tax rate, which very few business actually pay. However most businesses are classified as Subchapter S corporations and pay the personal income tax rate of 3.07%. this would make the effective business tax around 5%.
