The Pennsylvania Economic Development Financing Authority next month will sell $30 million of unrated tax-exempt revenue bonds to help finance a new equipment facility and terminal upgrades for US Airways at the Philadelphia International Airport.

The special facilities revenue bonds would normally be subject to the alternative minimum tax, but the sale will benefit from the AMT holiday included in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, according to Brian Deamer, program manager at Pennsylvania’s Department of Community and Economic Development. The authority is part of the department. The AMT suspension will expire at the end of 2010.
