Republican state lawmakers want Pennsylvania residents to understand the property tax shift scheme Gov. Tom Wolf proposed in his 2015-16 budget.
The House Majority Appropriations Committee on Monday launched a website -- www.TaxpayersThatPay.com -- that provides details on how Pennsylvania taxpayers in each of the state's 500 school
districts would fare under Wolf's proposed property tax shift
"Despite what the governor has been saying, his property tax shift
proposal would cost many taxpayers across the Commonwealth far more than
it would provide in property tax relief," state Rep. James R. Santora (R-Delaware) said. "Once it's
fully implemented, the governor's plan would raise more than $8 billion
in new taxes, but only put $3.6 billion toward property tax relief."
