A Scranton commuter tax proposal has been denied in a decision handed down by a three-judge panel Dec. 19, according to Glenburn Supervisor Bill Wicks, a member of Scranton Taxing Our people, one of the groups that opposed the levy.

The city had sought to implement a 1 percent tax on the earned incomes of those who work in Scranton but do not reside there. The tax was expected to raise $4 million the first year and $6.7 million the second.

Now that the commuter tax has been denied, the city will have to seek other sources of revenue.
