Property taxes and income tax Senate bill

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Many homeowners complain about school property taxes and a new senate bill would eliminate those taxes but not everyone is in favor of it.  Local representatives and homeowners spoke out against senate bill 76 at the capitol on Wednesday.  Senate bill 76 would increase the income tax and expand the sales tax in Pennsylvania to fund public schools instead of schools relying on property taxes.  Opponents of the bills ay that it would do neither of those and would cause more harm than good.
