Proposal Stops A Harrisburg Commuter Tax

/ WDAC

HARRISBURG – A Cumberland County lawmaker introduced a bill prohibiting a Harrisburg commuter tax from being imposed, while allowing the city to exit Act 47 receivership and “distressed” status. Rep. Greg Rothman’s House Bill 2557 states that there will be a prohibition on imposing a tax or fee on the earned income of non-residents. Rothman said he’s been working to revitalize Harrisburg for its residents and the more than 40,000 commuters who work in the city, but there’s no need for a commuter tax to be levied. He added its imposition would be devastating to attracting and maintaining private investment to the city. If a commuter tax was implemented, Rothman said many would be disincentivized to keep their jobs in Harrisburg.
