Rowe Supports Tax Cuts for PA

Jun. 04, 2024 / Embed

House Republicans unveiled a tax cut proposal identical to the plan that passed with bipartisan support in the Senate. The proposal would eliminate the Gross Receipts Tax on energy and cut the Personal Income Tax (PIT) rate from 3.07% to 2.8%. This means more money in every paycheck in Pennsylvania and critical energy savings for everyone who pays a utility bill. We believe you know best how to spend your hard-earned tax dollars. By slashing taxes, we can make Pennsylvania a more attractive place to plant roots and do business.

Sadly, House Democrats blocked my amendment and prevented these Pennsylvanians from accessing the program their own tax dollars are paying for.
