HARRISBURG – Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason released the following statement regarding Tom Wolf’s proposed 6.6% sales tax hike on accounting services.

“Filing taxes will get a lot more expensive for Pennsylvanians if the Tom Wolf tax hikes are passed,” Gleason said. “Tom Wolf wants to impose new taxes on everything from diapers to caskets.  Now, Tom Wolf wants to punish anyone who seeks professional help with filing their taxes with a major 6.6% sales tax.

“Can Tom Wolf really push for a tax on taxes? Why is Tom Wolf refusing to acknowledge the disastrous effect his tax hikes will have on the budgets of Pennsylvania families?

“Tom Wolf needs to shift his priorities from expanding the size of government to growing the size of our economy.”
