House of Representatives
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session

To: All House members
Subject: Proposed Legislation: Property Tax Circuit Breakers
In the near future, I will introduce legislation that would amend Pennsylvania’s Constitution to allow for property tax circuit breakers in Pennsylvania.

Property tax “circuit breakers” are really quite simple: it protects taxpayers from a property tax “overload” just like an electric circuit breaker. Specifically, my legislation will allow taxing authorities to exempt a taxpayer from paying the portion of their property tax that exceeds a certain set percentage of their household income.

Please join me in co-sponsoring this legislation, as I firmly believe that this proposal will offer Pennsylvania’s citizens much needed property tax relief.

If you have any questions regarding this legislation, please contact Brianna Medevich in my office by e-mail at bmedevic@pahouse.net or by telephone at 717-783-3815.

Introduced as HB2577
