SCHOOL REAL ESTATE TAXES — DYING LADY TRIES TO SAVE HER HOME

Share

This video was produced last year.  It is but one graphic example of what is wrong with this tax.

Tammy Keener of Sinking Spring was accompanied by about 30 like-minded people when she paid her Wilson School District property tax in small bills at the Fulton Bank in West Lawn.”This is not a political thing, and this is not to make the bank teller’s day any harder,” Keener said. “Doing this is a statement.”

Keener, 55, appeared before the Wilson School Board this month to ask for an end to the property tax as her dying wish. Keener said she suffers from celiac disease and feels that she does not have much more time.

The bill is stalled in the legislative process.Others, carrying signs that called for the end of school district property taxation, joined Keener from Lehigh County, Lancaster County and all around Berks.
