Car Rental Tax Proposed in PA County

Transit funding problems have sparked proposals of a new car rental tax in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, reports the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Allegheny County Chief Executive Dan Onorato plans to support a $2-per-day car rental tax. This tax, along with a tax on poured alcoholic drinks, will cover an increased transit payment by the county, required by the state, from $25 million to between $30 million and $35 million.

A bill was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives in May that would prohibit future car rental taxes nationally, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. If approved, this bill would prevent a county car rental tax.
