Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session


Posted: December 4, 2018 12:11 PM
From: Senator Mario M. Scavello
To: All Senate members
Subject: Homeowners Association Contributions Tax Deduction

As you all are aware, many homeowners across the State are having a difficult time keeping up with all of their financial obligations as it relates to their home. In response to this, several bills have been introduced with the intent of removing a portion of the burden homeowners are shouldering. However, I plan to take a different approach in providing relief for homeowners across the State.

In the near future, I plan to re-introduce legislation (former SB 878 of 2015-16) that will assist all Pennsylvania homeowners that are required to contribute to a homeowners association. If enacted, my legislation would permit homeowners to deduct 75% of the total amount they remitted to a qualifying association from their State PIT return.

Our current economic climate has placed a large burden on homeowners by adding additional or increasing financial obligations. Please join me in co-sponsoring this legislation.

If you have any questions regarding this legislation, please contact Christine Zubeck in my office at 717-787-6123 or czubeck@pasen.gov. Thank you for your consideration.

Introduced as SB539
