§ 1522. Commonwealth taxation.

(a) General.--The effectuation of the purposes of the authority is for the benefit of the people of this Commonwealth, for the increase of commerce and prosperity and for the improvement of health, safety, welfare and living conditions.

(b) Authority.--Since the authority, as a public instrumentality of the Commonwealth, will be performing essential governmental functions in effectuating these purposes, the authority is not required to pay any taxes or assessments upon any property acquired or used or permitted to be used by the authority for its purposes.

(c) Bonds.--Bonds issued by the authority, the transfer and the income from the bonds, including profit made on their sale, are free from State and local taxation within this Commonwealth. The exclusion under this subsection shall not extend to gift, estate, succession or inheritance taxes or any other taxes not levied directly on the bonds, their transfer, the income from the bonds or the realization of profits on their sale.
