MEMORANDUM

Posted: January 4, 2019 09:28 AM
From: Representative Clint Owlett
To: All House members
Subject: School Contractors Tax Exemption Legislation - Former HB 356
 
I intend to reintroduce (former HB 356) legislation that will assist school districts across the Commonwealth. If enacted, this legislation will provide a Sale and Use tax (SUT) exemption for items and/or services purchased by a contractor(s) on behalf of a school district, intermediate unit, area vocational-technical school or charter school that are related to a construction project.

Providing educational institutions with sufficient funding is a priority of the General Assembly. The task of providing adequate funding only becomes more muddled when schools are engaged in construction projects. By instituting a SUT exemption we provide schools with additional revenue while not increasing the tax burden on homeowners in Pennsylvania.

I hope you will join me in sponsoring this important legislation.
