IN THE KNOW: Business Privilege Tax
Taxing businesses is a complicated issue, but
it matters to everyone in Philadelphia. City Council is eying a plan to
change the way the "Business Privilege Tax" is structured, a debate that
may have long-term implications for the economic health of the city -
and implications for candidates in next year's election for mayor and
City Council. To help understand what's going on, the Committee of
Seventy's IN THE KNOW looks at what the Business Privilege Tax is and
explains the clashing ideas for reforming it.
The Committee of Seventy fights for clean and effective government, fair elections and a better informed citizenry in Philadelphia and the region.More on our mission.
