(Camp Hill) – Pennsylvania Farm Bureau has announced its support for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (H.R. 1), a complex tax reform bill passed by the U.S. House and Senate.
“Pennsylvania farmers are supportive of the tax reform package approved by Congress and expected to be signed by President Trump, because it includes provisions that have the potential to reduce our overall income tax burden,” said PFB President Rick Ebert, who is a full-time dairy farmer from Westmoreland County. “Farmers face a wide variety of financial challenges. Changes included in the bill should help address some of those concerns, while lowering the effective tax rate for farm families in Pennsylvania.”
Pennsylvania Farm Bureau is the state’s largest farm organization with a volunteer membership of more than 62,000 farm and rural families, representing farms of every size and commodity across Pennsylvania.
