 first time Home buyer

 

Pennsylvania Realtors receive Calls to Action . This is when we are encouraged to contact out local Congressmen or Senator to support a bill that is important to our industry .  This Call to Action I found very interesting . It is the first time I have heard of it . I hope to receive more information on this program I hope everyone reacts to this call to action . .

 

Call to Action: Support the First-Time Home-buyers Savings Account Program


The Pennsylvania Association of Realtors® urges all members to contact their state legislators and ask them to support House Bill 1981, which would establish the First-Time Home-buyers Savings Account Program.

 

 

The program would allow Pennsylvanians to save money toward the purchase of a home, and the money saved would qualify as a tax deduction for their state income tax return. Parents and grandparents would be eligible to save for children and grandchildren as well.

 

To take action, visit www.firsthomepa.com.

I had shared this on my social media feed Patricia Feager after contacting my representative and my senator in the state house. Sensible program of course the biggest problem like any sensible program is how you fund it or offset the loss of taxes as a result of this. But hope that both sides of the house and senate can get behind this.
