PA Lawmakers Propose State Tax Credit for Toll Payers

Pennsylvania Business Report looks at a proposal by two Pennsylvania lawmakers to provide a tax credit “to cover 50 percent of a taxpayer’s toll-related expenses for the taxable year up to $500.” The article quotes State Senator Steven Santarsiero (D-Bucks County) as saying, “Commuters, families, and businesses across southeastern Pennsylvania, who regularly pay tolls to maintain our roads and bridges, deserve the tax relief outlined in SB 451. With this tax credit, local commerce can thrive and expand.” The bill would provide a credit for tolls paid on the Pennsylvania Turnpike and toll bridges operated by the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission and the Delaware River Port Authority.
