HARRISBURG, Pa. (WTAJ) — Gov. Josh Shapiro revealed his state budget and is looking to lose one tax that most Pennsylvanians have to pay.
Shapiro, touting a more conservative budget, is looking to do away with the state’s cell phone taxes. Right now, cell taxes in Pennsylvania are over 16% of your monthly bill.
During Shapiro’s budget speech, he looked to remove the cell phone tax.
“First, let’s eliminate the state cell phone tax. In today’s world, practically everyone has a cell phone – and being connected to the rest of the world is critical to economic stability, safety, family, and success.”
