Pennsylvania to Reduce Corporate Net Income Tax Rate to 4.99% by 2031

From having the second-highest Corporate Net Income (CNI) tax rate in the country at 9.99%, Pennsylvania will soon have the sixth-lowest by 2031. Beginning January 1, 2023, the new CNI will be 8.99% and will lower by half a percent annually until it reaches 4.99% in 2031.

State Senator Pat Browne stated that “Pennsylvania’s overall business tax climate will soon be the most competitive among our northeastern states and the most competitive in the nation.”

In that same tax code reform package, like-kind exchanges for small businesses to defer personal tax liabilities are now allowed. Pennsylvania was the only state in the country that previously did not offer this type of deferral.

Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry President and CEO Luke Bernstein describes this new reform as a win for the people of Pennsylvania. “Pennsylvania has so much to offer potential investors and entrepreneurs. These tax reforms instantly make us more globally competitive and allow us to focus on Pennsylvania’s strengths as a hub of global commerce and opportunity – our prime location, world-class educational institutions, innovative workforce, and more.”
