Senate and House Bill 76, also referred to as the Property Tax Independence Act, is a bill that would replace property taxes in Pennsylvania by increasing the personal income tax from 3.07 to 4.95 percent and sales tax from 6 to 7 percent while expanding the levy to dozens of items that are exempt. The municipal property tax would not be affected.
