Discussing the Benefits of Tax Cuts


I had the pleasure of taking part in a forum on the federal Tax Cut and Jobs Act, and its impact on Pennsylvanians.

In just one instance, the tax cuts have saved Pennsylvania consumers $421 million when the state Public Utilities Commission required utility companies to pass along savings they received from lesser taxes onto consumers. This is not to mention the increase of take-home pay workers saw through the tax cuts.

The state Independent Fiscal Office published an analysis of the impact of tax reform, finding Pennsylvania families would see a tax break in almost every scenario. The lone exception was single filers with wage income of more than $300,000.

Despite this already financial upswing for Pennsylvanians, there is more the state can be doing to ensure it and its residents fully benefit from tax cuts. This includes:
  • Reducing the state’s overall tax burden so working families keep more of their income.
  • Addressing the state’s business tax structure to make Pennsylvania more competitive. The 9.99 percent corporate income tax rate drives businesses away.
  • Controlling state spending growth to generate tax reform and avoid budget deficits. One way is to adopt the Taxpayer Protection Act to limit spending growth to the average rate of inflation and population growth.
The House has taken some of those steps already. I proudly voted for House Bill 110, the Taxpayer Protection Act, which is now in the Senate. I look forward to addressing and implementing additional steps to bring state tax relief to residents.
