Gov. Tom Corbett's tax reform plan is getting a closer look from state lawmakers.
The proposals would lower the state’s corporate net income tax and complete the elimination of another tax on businesses.
Department of Revenue Secretary Dan Meuser said the net effect will be more than $1 billion in new tax revenue over the next 17 years.
"That comes from personal income growth, that comes from employment, and that comes from sales tax revenues that are derived from those who are now working that weren’t before," he said.
