Officials considering imposing a delivery tax on packages delivered across Pennsylvania

PennDOT leaders are looking into adding a $0.25 delivery tax on packages delivered in the state by Amazon, UPS and FedEx.

YORK, Pa. — “This proposal is gaining traction at the state as well as the federal level.”

PennDOT leaders are looking into adding a $0.25 delivery tax on packages delivered in the state by Amazon, UPS and FedEx.

“The concept definitely illustrates that there’s a potential for a nice chunk of revenue,” said Jennie Granger.

The proposal is still in the early stages. The money would help pay for fixing highways across the state.

Jennie Granger, a PennDOT Deputy Secretary says the tax could bring in between 200 to 250 million every year.

“I think this could be a significant funding source whether it was for transit or highways or local roadway networks,” said Granger.
