The Pennsylvania Coalition of Taxpayer Associations
Working together for equitable education funding reform



PCTA, the Pennsylvania Coalition of Taxpayer Associations, is an alliance of eighty-three nonpartisan grassroots Pennsylvania taxpayer advocacy groups that span the entire Commonwealth and represent tens of thousands of taxpayers. The PCTA is dedicated to the support of House Bill 76 and Senate Bill 76, the Property Tax Independence Act, legislation that will abolish school property taxes in Pennsylvania and will equitably replace a broken education finance system.
