Dem/GOP Gubernatorial Candidates On Taxes & Budgeting

/ WDAC

HARRISBURG (AP) – Where do the two candidates for PA governor – Democrat Gov. Tom Wolf and Republican nominee Scott Wagner – stand on the issue of taxes and budgeting? Wolf said he does not envision needing a budget-balancing tax increase in a second term, but will continue to pursue a severance tax on Marcellus Shale natural gas production. Wagner said he can reduce the cost of state government by $1.5 billion to $4 billion, although he hasn’t said how. Wagner said he also opposes tax increases, including on Marcellus Shale natural gas. Both Wagner and Wolf want to cut PA‘s 9.99% corporate net income tax rate. Wagner wants to lower it to the same rate as the state personal income tax at 3.07%. Wolf last year proposed lowering the rate in steps to 6.49% in 2022, and also restructuring how it is applied to stop businesses based in other states from avoiding the tax on their operations in Pennsylvania.
