Helm Co-Sponsors Bill Creating a First-Time Home Buyer Savings Account for PA Citizens - 5/1/2018
Legislation that would establish a First-Time Home Buyer Savings Account Program was the topic of a news conference held Tuesday in the state capitol. House Bill 1981 would allow qualified Pennsylvania citizens to set aside savings, which may be used as a deduction on state income tax toward the eligible costs of purchasing a first home. Under the proposal, first-time home buyers could contribute a total of $50,000 over a 10-year time period toward purchase of a home. Rep. Sue Helm (R-Dauphin/Lebanon), a realtor and co-sponsor of the legislation, said this measure would go a long way to help first time home purchasers, who often struggle for years to save enough money to make a down payment on their first home.
