SB 76 MOVED OUT OF FINANCE!!

SB 76 Picture

It is time for more discussion! SB 76 the NO more school property tax was voted and passed In the Senate Finance Committee 6-5! We were there TODAY. Now it goes to Approbations Committee to see it they will pass it to the floor. Wags and I along with many of our REALTOR friends filled the rooms (yes they had to open up a second hearing room there were so many of us because we were having our State Organization meeting the same day!!) with high hopes! Check out RealReform76 for more information, find your Senator, and to share your story!  Basically, Philadelphia and that area and the teachers union are the greatest opponents, while every retired person with property and Realtor in the state should be for it. Here’s how the finance committee voted:

Yes –
Senator Blake, Democratic chair (D-Lackawanna)
Senator Browne (R-Lehigh)
Senator Brubaker, Republican chair (R-Lancaster)
Senator Eichelberger (R-Blair)
Senator Scarnati (R-Clearfield)
Senator Wozniak (D-Cambria)

No –
Senator Greenleaf (R-Montgomery)
Senator Hutchinson (R-Venango)
Senator Smith (D-Allegheny)
Senator Teplitz (D-Dauphin)
Senator Vance (R-Cumberland)

No More School Tax??

At our state Realtor Association meetings in Harrisburg this September more details on the progress of PA House Bill 76 and PA Senate Bill 76 were disclosed.  The goal is to replace the school property tax with a personal or earned income tax.

Our association is committed to property tax reform and is moving forward with a campaign to support these bills. A presentation was made at our meetings by Jason Horwitz of the Anderson Economic Group. Check out their research on this topic. Soon the PAR Realtor Association will have a website with more details.

If it passes, all homeowners would no longer be paying property taxes to support a school district.  Homeowners without children have long cried, “no fair” to school taxes. Our second home owners at Hidden Valley and Seven Springs would no longer pay a tax to a school that their children do not attend.

The numbers appear to work so keep your eyes and ears open so you can have a say!
