No Business Privilege/Mercantile Taxes
Bridgeport does not have a Privilege/Mercantile tax. This is one of many incentives to have your business in Bridgeport.
The Borough of Bridgeport is very excited to announce that we will be hosting our 2nd Annual Bridgeport 5K on Sunday, October 7, 2018. The Bridgeport 5K will have two beneficiaries this year – Addie’s Angels and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Once again, we will welcome runners throughout the region to “test their skills on our hills” and join us in supporting two wonderful charities. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is at the forefront with the battle against cancer, having invested over $1.2 billion in cancer research since 1949. Addie’s Angels is a newly-formed non-profit, created by the family of Addie Auth. The daughter of Bridgeport Borough employee David Auth, Adelynn “Addie” Auth is a four year old who was diagnosed with T-Cell Leukemia in March 2018. The mission of Addie’s Angels is to support the family in their time of need, while also drawing awareness to the search for a cure.
The mission of the Bridgeport 5K is to showcase our town to visitors and residents alike, encourage volunteerism, and provide a different, challenging, and unique course for avid runners and walkers alike.
The 2018 Bridgeport 5K will include a 5K run/walk, a Kids Fun Run, live entertainment and race ceremony. This event will be staged outdoors in Bridgeport. Registration will begin at 7:30am, the 5K will commence at 9:00am, and the Kids Run Fun will start after the 5K has concluded.
Bridgeport, Montgomery County. Registration/Starting Line will be located at the Bridgeport riverfront property behind Frosty Falls, 98 DeKalb Street in Bridgeport.
Awards for top 3 male/female.
