TOWNSHIP TO CONSIDER AUTHORIZING MUNICIPAL TAX CREDITS TO FIRE AND EMS VOLUNTEERS
In November of 2016, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf signed into law Act 172 of 2016 authorizing municipalities to grant fire and emergency medical service volunteers certain credits toward local taxes. Under Act 172, municipalities may now offer a credit to a volunteer’s local earned income tax and real estate tax. Municipalities can enact a Volunteer Service Credit Program by passing an ordinance and enacting policies supporting the program.
On November 27, 2017 the North Coventry Board of Supervisors will consider an ordinance enacting this program. The full text of the ordinance can be download below.
