Pa. House Revenue Package Will Close Tax Loopholes, While Preserving Critical Services


This Reports and Briefing Papers outlines the components of House Bill 2435, the House revenue package introduced by State Rep. Dwight Evans in May of 2010. Raising an estimated $344 million in the first year alone, HB 2435 will close corporate tax loopholes, enact a severance tax on natural gas production, assess an excise tax on cigars and smokeless tobacco, and close a sales tax giveaway that has put millions of our sales tax dollars in the pockets of big retailers like Home Depot and Wal-Mart.
