House of Representatives
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session


Posted: February 3, 2021 11:46 AM
From: Representative David H. Rowe
To: All House members
Subject: Voluntary Donations to the General Fund
In the near future, I intend to introduce legislation to allow concerned citizens to donate additional income directly to the Commonwealth’s General Fund.
With Pennsylvania’s fair, equitable, and flat tax rate of 3.07%, some individuals pay less in taxes than they are willing to. Instead of raising taxes on hard-working families who have been devastated by COVID-19 shutdowns, arbitrary waiver processes, and government bureaucracy, I want to give citizens the opportunity to voluntarily write checks to the Commonwealth to help the Commonwealth’s revenue.

Please join me in co-sponsoring this legislation.

Introduced as HB1480
