CITY OF PITTSBURGH
2009 PARKING TAX BULLETIN
PARKING TAX RATE CHANGE
Effective January 1, 2009 the Parking Tax rate will decrease from forty percent (40%) to
thirty seven and one half percent (37.5%). The new rate shall be applied to all taxable
considerations collected in January 2009 and to all subsequent 2009 taxable collections.
The new rate will be reported for the first time on the January 2009 Parking Tax Monthly
Report form due February 15, 2009. ALL 2009 monthly Parking Tax reports shall show
parking tax collected at the thirty seven and one half percent (37.5%) rate.
CALCULATION EXAMPLE FOR THE PARKING TAX
If a parking place collects a total charge of $10.00 to park, including tax, the parking tax
would be calculated by taking $10.00 x .27273 = $2.73. In this example, for each car
parked at $10.00, the operator would keep $7.27 and send $2.73 to the City of Pittsburgh.
