City Tax Shift: Bill Green’s Doing It Wrong

Share With Friends

This BIRT bill from Philly Councilman Bill Green is the reverse of what needs to happen to the city tax mix.

You raise the parking tax to pay for your fruit seller tax credits and business tax cuts, you don’t raise the business taxes to pay for a parking tax cut. The parking tax is already way too low at 20%.

The tax system needs to reward productive uses of city land (fruit sales, offices) not the least productive use of land there is (idle vehicle storage.)
