C.D. school board balks at tax-shift plan

According to a report in The Patriot-News, Central Dauphin school board members are still trying to tie down how much savings in property taxes would result from a proposed 0.4 percent hike in the earned income tax rate. The issue will be the subject of a referendum on the May 15 primary election ballot.

Under the plan, renters and households with a combined income of more than $75,000 would get hit with an overall tax hike.

This state-mandated tax plan, known as Act 1, is getting bad press across the state. In Mechanicsburg, school board members are recommending voters reject the tax hike that will appear on a ballot referendum.

You can put me in the "no" column on this one.
