Property tax reform is an ongoing and complicated discussion. House Bill 1189 recently passed the State House of Representatives amending the 1965 Local Tax Amending Act.  This bill authorizes school districts to assess and collect an elimination tax as a means of reducing or eliminating property tax millage rates.

As the bill heads to the Senate, we’ve asked tax experts to weigh in on property tax reform from a financial, non-partisan perspective.  What would changes to current property tax laws mean for homeowners, businesses, school districts?  Your community – your property and business owners, your schools and your citizens – could be greatly impacted.  Listen in on Oct. 31 to learn more about property taxes and tax reform so you can more clearly explain it to your readers.

Teleconference is scheduled to begin promptly at 12 noon.  Cost: $10 per phone line for PNA members.  $20 for non-members.  To register, email Kathleen Landis or phone her at 717-703-3012.

Presenters include accountants from the PA Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

This is another in a series of sessions being made available through the PNA Foundation’s Reporters’ Series.  The Reporters’ Series is meant to provide an educational, non-partisan forum for in-depth exploration of important and timely policy issues impacting the Commonwealth. Through these inexpensive and convenient teleconference sessions, you can simply phone in and listen to experts explain the particulars of a policy topic or pending legislation.  Straight facts that will help you better understand and cover an issue and its effect on your community and readers.
