Scavello Discusses His Property Tax Elimination Bill on PCN Call-In Program

4/23/18 - PCN Call-In Show: School Property Tax Elimination

I recently appeared on the PCN Call-In Program with Senator Lisa Boscola to discuss school property tax elimination and my proposal to eliminate residential school property taxes through the state’s existing homestead exclusion program. 

Senate Bill 1137 is the implementing legislation from the ballot referendum passed in November, where voters across the state supported a constitutional amendment to expand the exclusion program.

My proposed legislation provides elimination of school property taxes on all owner-occupied homes by shifting the tax burden from homes to an increase in the state personal income tax (PIT), referred to as the “Education Tax.” The legislation would increase the personal income tax rate 1.98 percent to 5.05 percent.

I am continuing the fight for school property tax elimination. Any tax that would take a person’s home after working their entire life to pay for it is wrong and immoral.
