Dollars to Delaware

Let's Close Corporate Tax Loopholes in PA and Level the Playing Field for All Businesses
Get PBPC's Analysis of the Reed-DePasquale
Tax Loophole Bill

Read the Policy Brief
Read the Press Release
Most states with corporate income taxes have taken steps to close tax loopholes. The Patriot-News recentlyeditorialized that Pennsylvania should do the same in a piece aptly titled "Nix the free pass." 
Representatives Dave Reed (R-Indiana) and Eugene DePasquale (D-York) have proposed legislation aimed at closing loopholes used by multi-state corporations to shift income earned in Pennsylvania to low- and no-tax states, like Delaware. It is important that they have acknowledged that the Delaware Loophole promotes an unfair and unbalanced business climate.
However, as PBPC explains in a new policy brief, the Reed-DePasquale bill needs to be strengthened to truly close the tax loopholes that are robbing Pennsylvania schools, colleges, health care providers and other vital services of millions of dollars each year.
