House of Representatives
Session of 2015 - 2016 Regular Session


Posted: February 23, 2015 11:52 AM
From: Representative Keith Gillespie
To: All House members
Subject: Resolution – Amend PA Constitution – School Property Taxes
In the near future, I will be introducing a joint resolution as part of a package of legislation to address school property tax reform. The resolution will make a necessary constitutional change in order to allow the General Assembly to address residential school property taxes without impacting property taxes paid by commercial properties.

Under the constitution currently, all properties must be treated the same regardless of whether they are commercial or residential properties.

Introduced as HB598
