Letter to the Editor: Property Tax Makes Me Think About Leaving Pennsylvania

letter, LTE

Another election has come and gone. Politicians have made more promises to provide property tax relief, particularly to seniors. The jaded among us expect these promises will continue to be unfulfilled.

As I approach retirement age and consider the negative effect paying school taxes will have on my 401(k), I think I may have found a solution. Instead of voting for politicians and empty promises, I will instead vote with my feet — and move to a state that won’t tax me into the poorhouse.
