If you are a Pennsylvania resident and are considering leasing a car, you should know that Pennsylvania imposes an additional 3% tax on the lease of motor vehicles, in addition to the state 6% sales tax. This special tax is collected and put into the Public Transportation Assistance (PTA) Fund, and is dedicated to funding mass transportation.
This tax is 3% of the total lease price, and applies to motor vehicles leased for 30 days or more. When deciding on whether to purchase or lease a new vehicle, make sure to factor in this additional cost.
