Making Home Ownership Permanent

Issue Position

For decades, school property taxes have resulted in untold numbers of sheriff's sales, where senior homeowners, who have in many cases already paid off their mortgages, or working families, living from paycheck to paycheck, lose their homes due to their inability to pay. Since rebate checks and gambling revenues are clearly not solving the problem, Rep. Oberlander supports the complete elimination of school property taxes, unfunded mandates and across the board tax reform at the state, county and local government levels. Through the reduction of high taxes on both job creators and employees, hard work and honest solutions, Pennsylvania homeowners can finally realize real security and tax fairness.
