For over 30 years, Pennsylvanians have been calling for real property tax reform. Skyrocketing property taxes have paralyzed our state. Our neighbors have been losing their homes. The elderly have to determine whether they pay their taxes or visit the doctor. Young families need to decide if they want to stay in Pennsylvania or leave.

It's time to fix the problem. Senate Bill 76 would do just that. Senate Bill 76 is a commonsense, comprehensive and bold plan to eliminate property taxes for local schools, saving homeowners thousands while holding our local school districts harmless. The Pennsylvania Senate is debating property tax reform over the next few weeks. Simultaneously, Real Reform 76 is advocating senators to pass Senate Bill 76. It is imperative that taxpayers across the state contact their respective senator.

It will take a true grassroots approach to ensure victory. However, it can be done. We simply need each of us to take action. The day Senate Bill 76 passes will be the day that Pennsylvania homeowners and taxpayers can celebrate this bipartisan victory.
