Mission Statement

The Philadelphia Tax Reform Commission (TRC) exists to recommend methods to reduce the taxes of Philadelphia residents, workers and businesses in an equitable manner in order to enhance Philadelphia's ability to compete with other jurisdictions in attracting and retaining new residents, businesses and jobs.

Guiding principles of the TRC are:

  • Recommending specific ways to reduce taxes of Philadelphia residents, workers and businesses in an equitable manner;

  • Reforming the tax structure to enhance and improve the City's ability to compete with other jurisdictions in the region and throughout the nation in attracting new residents, businesses and jobs and retaining current residents, businesses and jobs; and

  • Providing tax fairness and tax equity in apportioning tax burdens.
