Fair Share Tax Plan

This is an attempt to bring taxation equity to PA while penalizing small businesses. There are 3 options to this bill. One of the options will be chosen to move forward. Option One would raise $2.6 billion in new tax revenue. Under this plan, the personal income tax on wages and interest would decrease from 3.07 percent to 2.8 percent, and the income tax would increase to 6.5 percent on passive income from things like net profits, dividends, net gains derived from rents, royalties, patents and copyrights, gambling and lottery winnings and net gains derived through estates and trust. Option Two would raise $6.22 billion annually by decreasing the income tax on wages and interest to 1.9 percent and increasing the tax on passive income to 12 percent. Option Three is a middle-ground between the first two options, decreasing the income tax on wages and interest to 2.35 percent and increasing the tax on passive income to 9.25%.
The Go Big Small Biz Network strongly opposes this proposed bill. While it seems favorable to the employees of small businesses, these measures would severely burden small business owners, leading to inflation, job losses, and even closures. Closed businesses in our community means no jobs. This is Government Overreach at it’s finest, attacking the backbone of our economy, small businesses. But there’s hope. Act now! It will take you less than :60 for you to submit a pre-written letter that will automatically go to your legislator and elected officials. Your voice counts and it matters when we are meeting with legislators. Thank you for taking action now!
