DiSanto Proposes Constitutional Amendment to Eliminate School Property Taxes
HARRISBURG—Senator John DiSanto (Dauphin/Perry) has introduced a proposal that would allow Pennsylvania residents to vote directly on the elimination of school property taxes through an amendment to the state constitution.
DiSanto said, “Constituents in my district and across the entire Commonwealth are suffering greatly under the weight of constantly increasing school property taxes. The status quo is unacceptable, and voter approval of this constitutional amendment would force the General Assembly to address this issue once and for all. Powerful and entrenched special interests opposing reform would no longer be able to block needed action.”
For decades, relief measures such as school property tax referendums and casino gaming have fallen short of expectations and have done little to ease the burden of Pennsylvania homeowners—especially our seniors living on fixed-incomes.
As recently as 2017, Pennsylvania voters overwhelmingly approved a constitutional amendment expanding the homestead exclusion to 100 percent of a home’s assessed value, yet three more years have passed with no meaningful property tax reforms.
DiSanto said, “I continue to advocate for and support the bipartisan Property Tax Independence Act, introduced as Senate Bill 76, but it has been nearly five years since this measure was last considered on the floor of the Senate, when it was defeated by just one vote. The Governor has expressed his opposition. It’s past time to allow the people of Pennsylvania directly to decide the future of school property tax elimination.”
Much like the Property Tax Independence Act, this constitutional amendment would have the General Assembly replace school property tax revenues with a combination of state and local sales and income taxes. DiSanto’s proposal would guarantee that our local school districts receive the same amount of revenue as they did from the property tax, so education funding would be more equitable for taxpayers while ensuring school needs are met.

People complain every year we need a change of parties. No change will ever help especially in Penna. We are the 5th most corrupt state heading fast to #1. The reason we call it the democrat party or republican party is because that is what it is a PARTY.
So sick of this subject talk, talk, talk is all we get while seniors are begging for relief. Just finally do the job the people voted for five years ago!!! I bet not one PA politician is in danger of losing their home over school taxes.
Time to empty the swamps everywhere, if it is clogged poke, shoot holes in it or take a nine iron to it. It will drain or they will run, either way it will drain. Ask your “elected official politician” if he/she/what-ever works full time for the people or are they working outside of their district like we have here in NEPA. Also ask them what their salary, per-diem rate and car allowance is. Let’s see their tax returns, should be a web site. Most are just a “Cheerleader” for the so called Wolf pack swamp puppets, sad but true. We need HB76 NOW! Don’t let them put “blinders” on you, we are not horses to be lead around the free yard. HB76 NOW, not asking stupid.
Yea right I voted for Wolf because he was going to do away with the school taxes I have come to the conclusion that these democrats have lied to me one time to many . I will vote total republican from now on
Get rid of school property tax raise the sales tax to 7 percent everyone pays. John Blake is against it. We need educated people in Harrisburg that is for the people and not for school districts , but stop all this bullshit these schools come up with it's not education it's all about sports . Just look at the pictures in the paper when a student signs up for college whose standing by him . There is a lot of waste of money do we need all these people coach , asst. Coach , asst. Asst. Asst . Educated people know what the word Cut means. These Districts should implement that word to use and not the maintenance guy. Start at the top. Just think how much money could be saved.
Me too,property taxes,drove me out of my house in,Radnor Township 😠😡
Will this mirror senate 76? Including the income and sales tax hike? Will it also mirror senate 76 where it only applies to two or three school districts and not the other 497?
How do I get a new Pennsylvania Liberty Alliance property tax sign. Mine has deteriorate, letters fading off and has folded itself in half from the wind.
That would be such a highlight for a crappy year!!! Do it!!!!
Hope this gets done.
Yeah ok Must be election time again.
We need to do this now!
Will this be on the ballot this year?
Rendell said pass the casinos it will eliminate property taxes .another lying Democrat.
YES, YES, YES!!!
It's not the Governor who is blocking this. It is those in the house and senate.

Didn't that douchebag apologize? WTH for? Why apologize for what you did as Pennsylvanians struggle to keep their businesses open, to make a living, to feed their families. Him, Wolfe, & Fetterman and the rest of their ilk are low life hypocrites.
This is how the state of Penna is run not just Phila.If you choose to raise a family or have a business in this high tax crime and homicide state with inheritance tax that even robs your family upon death of their right full inheritance then people should not complain.Penna is the 5th most corrupt state in the country and getting worse
Rules for thee but not for me !
