Support tax reform

For more than 30 years, Pennsylvanians have been calling for real property tax reform. Skyrocketing property taxes have paralyzed our state. Our neighbors have been losing their homes. The elderly have to determine whether they pay their taxes or visit the doctor. Many young families are unable to become homeowners because of high taxes making homes unaffordable.
It’s time to fix the problem. Senate Bill 76 would do just that.
SB 76 is a common-sense, comprehensive and bold plan to eliminate property taxes for local schools, saving homeowners thousands while holding our local school districts harmless.
The Pennsylvania Senate is debating property tax reform over the next few weeks. Simultaneously, Real Reform 76 is advocating Senators to pass SB 76.
It is imperative that taxpayers across the state contact their respective senator. It will take a true grassroots approach to ensure victory. We simply need each of us to take action.
Be informed: Attend the town hall meeting at 7 p.m. Jan. 29 in the Tanglewood Event Center, 10 Austin Ave., Lyndora.
