Philadelphia's local tax went up, bringing them to 8%, while the suburbs are at 6 and Delaware, which is basically a suburb of Philadelphia, is still at 0. The mayor says there will be no "material impact." Like he knows. He also says that it's just temporary- for five years. OK, who's willing to bet? In six years, that "temporary" tax will still be there. There really are no "temporary" taxes. It also looks like some retailers will eat the tax rather than pass it on. Which is absorption and illegal in Pennsylvania. Wonder if they're going to enforce that? kyw1060 philadelphia.bizjournals.com and others
