Tax Wars

As we reported yesterday, a lot of City Council members are concerned about Mayor Nutter's plan to kill the Low Income Tax Credit, which was championed by late Councilman David Cohen.

Nutter today repeated the administration position -- that there are other tax cuts in place that will help the working poor. But he also said he looks forward to discussing this with Council.

"I understand the concern," Nutter said. "As I said some time ago, we're continuing the wage tax cuts that affect everyone."

He added "I'm always willing and available to listen to Council members about any concerns they may have."
