Website exposes Pa. Gov. Wolf's property tax scheme

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 -- -- 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 plan.

"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."
