Heffley Explains Next Steps for Property Tax Relief
11/22/2017
HARRISBURG – On Tuesday, Nov. 7, Pennsylvanians voted on a statewide referendum which would enable the Legislature to take substantial steps toward property tax elimination. Over 75 percent of voters in Rep. Doyle Heffley’s (R-Carbon) 122nd Legislative District approved the measure.

Statewide, with 99 percent of precincts reporting, 948,225 votes were cast in favor of the referendum, and 808,371 votes were cast in opposition. Of Pennsylvania’s 67 counties, 11 voted “no” and 56 voted “yes.”

The referendum allows local governments to exclude up to the full value of primary residences in the Commonwealth, as opposed to up to 50 percent of the median assessed home value in a school district as was previously the limit, from a homeowner’s tax bill.

With the passage of the referendum, the next step is for the General Assembly to provide local governments with additional revenue in combination with local options to replace the funding currently supplied from property taxes.

“Despite the governor’s best efforts to thwart this measure, Pennsylvanians have provided a loud and clear mandate in favor of property tax elimination,” said Heffley. “With 54 percent of voters supporting the property tax referendum, I believe we now have the momentum to move to a more equitable tax structure instead of taxing people out of their homes.”
