Tax on legal services

Charlie Klitsch, the Philadelphia Bar Association’s Director of Public and Legal Services, has sent the following message to the Legislative Liaison Committee:

the Association’s Legislative Action Center is up and running. You are encouraged to contact your state Senator and Representative to express your opposition to SB 76, the “tax reform” bill that underfunds our public schools and seeks to impose a sales tax on most legal services.


Information about SB 76 is on the Legislative Action Center page here:http://philadelphiabar.org/page/LACTakeAction3?appNum=2


Using the form letter in the Action Center is good.  However, it is more desirable to communicate directly with a legislator and express your position in your own words.
