In late 2016, Gov. Tom Wolf declared he would not propose an income tax or a sales tax increase as part of his 2017-18 budget! While this doesn’t take other tax hikes off the table, sales and income taxes have been the 800-pound gorilla and the elephant in the room in the last two budget proposals. Taking them off the table before Wolf releases his 2017-18 budget proposal was a victory for Pennsylvanians who are already overburdened with taxes.
