With a 3.07% flat rate income tax, Pennsylvania is one of the lower taxed states income-wise. But there are no exemptions or deductions given so this flat tax is levied from the first dollar. Pennsylvania has no estate tax, but it has an inheritance tax of 4.5% when property is passed parents to children, 12% to siblings and 15% to all other heirs.
Corporations are taxed at a flat 9.99% and the rules are rather straightforward. Sales tax is 6% but localities may add another 2%. For more detailed information please see: http://www.revenue.state.pa.us/
