House of Representatives
Session of 2023 - 2024 Regular Session


Posted: June 29, 2023 02:10 PM
From: Representative Joe Hogan
To: All House members
Subject: EMS and Fire Fighter Tax Credit
Dear Colleagues,
To go along with the tax credit for Police, Teachers, and Nurses that was recently approved by the House I plan on introducing similar legislation that expands the tax credit to offer it to Fire and Ems members.

As you may know there is a severe shortage of paid and volunteer fire fighters as well as a severe shortage of Emergency Medical Service personnel, and I believe that a tax credit similar to what is proposed for Police officers would go a long way to help entice individuals into these fields as well as help retain the people already preforming these critical duties.

Therefore, I plan on introducing legislation that will give a $2500 tax credit per year over three years to Fire and EMS personnel that currently serve in the state of Pennsylvania and those that move to our state to take up these positions.

Please join me in sponsoring this important legislation.

Introduced as HB1557
