We need to ask for your help today to educate your state elected officials about the importance of the Pennsylvania’s KIZ tax credit. We are particularly concerned about the future of the program given the 40 percent cut that occurred last year and this year’s call from Governor Tom Wolf for a $100 million reduction across all of Pennsylvania’s various tax credit programs.
If you agree with us that this is a valuable program that supports start-ups, please contact your elected officials today to express your support. The Pittsburgh Technology Council has created an easy-to-use tool for you to contact Governor Wolf, as well as your state senator and state representative.
Please take action here: http://capwiz.com/pghtech/issues/alert/?alertid=75861626&PROCESS=Take+Actio
