Montrose Area School Board will be adding to its March agenda a motion to place a referendum question regarding a tax shift to the minimum personal income tax allowable under Act 1 on the May 15 ballot. This decision, made at the February 12 meeting, was far from unanimous.
Two questions were posed to the board members for discussion and decision. One regarded whether or not they wanted to follow the tax study commission's recommendation that the district shift to an earned income tax (EIT) instead of a personal income tax (PIT). The second involved whether they wanted to follow the commission's recommendation that they pursue the minimum rather than maximum rate.
For the first time, taxpayers in the Forest City Regional School District will have a voice in a proposed school tax increase before the increase can take place.
Voters will be asked if they favor imposing an additional one percent earned income tax. At the present time, residents of the school district pay one percent wage tax, and that is split between the school and the municipality, if the municipality also a wage tax. If the municipality does not have a wage tax, the one percent goes to the school district.
