Tax Reform Plan Expected to Save Middle Class Taxpayers

Congressman Lou Barletta speaks to members of the Columbia Montour Chamber at a breakfast in October.

The average person in Pennsylvania will save over $2,000 annually on their taxes with the passage of a tax reform plan being ironed out between the House and the Senate, according to Congressman Lou Barletta. When Barletta spoke to Chamber members in October, he pledged that any tax reform plan would have to benefit the middle class. Following the passage of a House plan in mid-November, the Senate plan passed along party lines in the early morning of Saturday, Dec. 2. The bill now goes to a conference committee to work out the differences between the plans with a goal of having a final version to President Trump by Christmas.

Here is a full article on the passage of the Senate bill and the path forward from the Harrisburg Patriot News.
