12774.jpgGovernor Wolf proposes sales tax on legal services. For most Pennsylvanians, hiring a lawyer is a necessity and not a luxury. Access to legal justice is a basic constitutional right and taxing that access and treating it as a commodity is abhorrent to fundamental justice. Increasing the cost of effective legal representation by imposing a 6.6% sales tax would adversely impact citizens in this State who have limited means and would be adverse to helping the infirm and elderly. When people are abused and need protection from an abusive spouse, should they have to pay a sales tax in order to have their safety insured? If an elderly person of limited means wants to write a will or needs to probate the will of a loved one, in addition to legal fees, should they pay to the State an additional
6.6% as a sales tax? If a hard-working father who is between jobs finds himself in a position that he must fight a home foreclosure in order to house his family, should he be required to pay a sales tax in order to gel and obtain legal representation? If a single mother has her property improperly assessed by local government, should she be required to pay a sales tax for legal services to fight the injustice? If an injured worker seeks compensation or social security benefits and is already limited in his income, should he be required to pay, in addition to legal fees, a sales tax?

The obvious answer is no. We, therefore, ask you to contact your State Legislature and State Senator right now and tell them to vote against this proposed tax. Certainly you can use the points we make in this email and if you know of other reasons why a sales tax on legal services should not be imposed or can point to situations in your own life when having to pay a sales tax in order to obtain proper legal representation would have been difficult or even impossible, please feel free to set forth
those examples. Remember, even a short message expressing your opposition is important and effective.

Whatever happens, we at Davis & Davis will continue to represent you to the best of our abilities but we will fight for you and your right to have legal representation without the added cost of an onerous sales tax!
